Doing It Without Guilt

We have come a long way…baby!

It may have taken us over 6 years to finally “get it”, but we have. We work hard and we play even harder but when the time comes to just be able to relax, we now do it without the guilt.


Whenever we work the Christmas tree lot, we know it is weeks of 12 hour shifts and we are tired at the end. We give ourselves the time to play as soon as we can, which we again did this year as we headed for the Laughlin desert. We did an all nighter at the casinos…it was 4am before we came home and discussed what we need to do today. We both agreed…NOTHING! The only thing we had to do was to do it without guilt, which we did.


First off, we slept until noon. Sure can’t remember the last time that happened. Then we just ate and napped for the rest of the day, nothing else. No worries about cleaning, laundry or any other things on our list that needs to get done, tomorrow is another day when we will work on the list, but for today, we simply were there in the moment without a care in the world. Life certainly has it’s way of allowing us to just be, if we allow it.

Work hard, play hard, and...relax hard! Sounds like a good plan to me! Guilt adds nothing to the mix so it's good to throw it off.
