I have longed for these lazy days during the past two weeks. We began a countdown at school as children wished to go out and play outside under the warm sun; and teachers wanted to put their feet up and not think of anything classroom related. I longed for the chance to put my feet up on the sofa and immerse myself in a world created by one of my preferred authors. I looked forward to getting up a little later and experiencing the day at a slower pace.
The last few days have been bliss as I have rested. I feel my energy coming back and my mind surging ahead to all that I wish to do during the next two months. The summer vacation seems long at the start of it; but I have found that it passes by quite easily. Keeping the focus on what I want to do will help me make good use of the time I will be spending at home.
Now I am savouring the school break, thankful that the start of the next school year is far from near.
What have you longed for in the past few weeks?
