Yes, time out. Enough. Just breathe.
Sometimes you just need a bit of space, even for a night, to unwind and decompress.
One of the things I love doing is taking a bath. On occasion, I might find myself at a gorgeous hotel like the Fairmont Pacific Rim - my home away from home - and blissfully melt away my stress (at least for 30 mins) in their large Japanese soaker tubs while watching seaplanes land and takeoff in Burrard Inlet. With the mountains and water at my feet and Canada Place right next door, I have the best view in the city to relax and spend time on me. On top of that, who wouldn’t want to sit in a hot bath filled with rose petals (from precisely two dozen roses, I might add)?!
Let's face it - my real, day-to-day life is nowhere near this fantasy life. What, with two boys gnawing at me for everything imaginable to juggling multiple careers and businesses - who has time for this? Well, apparently I do, because sometimes you just have to say ‘No. Enough.” and make time. No one else will do it for you; I learned this very quickly after taking on so much. So at least for this post, let me enjoy my fantasy. Most days I'll be lucky if I can fit in a shower.
And even if it’s just for a day - do it. Embrace it. Because baby, you deserve it.
Next time on V, I'll talk about what I changed into after my hot bath, for a great night out!
What do you do to decompress quickly, for a day? Send me your thoughts!
