August 3, 2014: What Not Working Tomorrow Means

simcoe

Like most of you, or some of you….I can’t really be sure, when Sunday night rolls around, I start to wonder if I actually accomplished anything.  Sometimes this starts Sunday afternoon.  I mean, someone is going to ask me what I did this weekend, aren’t they?

Fortunately, thanks to something called Simcoe Day, I didn’t have to worry about this, and I still don’t.  That’s right tomorrow is another day off.

Today, sometime in the middle of the afternoon, while putting a little bit of pressure on myself to get out and do something, I realized that there was nothing that I absolutely had to do.  That realization, and the relaxation that followed are Today’s Perfect Moment.

That is not to say that I accomplished nothing.  In fact, I probably got more done because I did not feel under the gun at all.

Of course, I could have gone out and done some stuff.  The thing is, had I gone out, I probably would just have spent money on things I really didn’t need.  Perhaps, I am subconsciously thinking about buying that expensive road bike, and saving money for that big purchase, and all the accessories I am starting to talk myself into.

Tomorrow, when I don’t have to go to work, I might start to put pressure on myself to do something.  The good news is that very few stores will be open, and the most difficult thing that I have to do is prepare lunch for Tuesday.
