Lighter Skies, Lighter Week

Next week, for the first time in ages, I have a lighter week. Two sessions to deliver, as opposed to the seven or eight that appear to be the norm these days.

In the past, this would concern me. What am I missing out on? What is it doing to my revenue targets? Why am I not so busy?

These days, I take this as an opportunity. A chance to do things around the house. To read, prepare, play music, write, explore. Above all, a chance to simply be.

I’ve learned that over the course of a year, a bit of time outside of delivery brings an opportunity to refresh, relax and recharge for the busy times ahead.

Enjoy the lighter times. They can pass by quickly. They are as much a gift as those intense periods of work. Make use of them while they are with you.

Judging by the lighter skies on our walk today, there will be some good weather to enjoy, too!
