I’m not talking about the joy that Maria Kono sparks when you get rid of stuff. I’m talking about the joy I get when I have something to look forward to.
It dawned on me this spring break that I am the happiest when I have people coming over or when I have plans to do something. I realized that I get restless when I have a whole day to myself. I flit around the house, start a variety of projects, and spend time on social media endlessly if I don’t have something on the planner.
Yes, I realize one can over plan and life can get extremely stressful if too much is going on but I get giddy when I have plans! Let me be clear–planning on going to the gym does not count–I’m still talking myself out of that as often as I can. I’m a work in progress.
Tonight, is date night. I’m going to a restaurant and a concert. I’m going to wash my hair (it isn’t even a hair washing day!) and I have yet to figure out what to wear–all adds to the fun.
Saturday I’m going out for breakfast and dinner at a friend’s house.
Sunday is wide open….for now!
