I sipped lavender green tea. I chatted. Someone asked where I was going all dressed up and I said: Here, just here. Because I will wear my pretty clothes for no other reason than I like the feel of a crisp pencil skirt and the whimsical click of 4″ sequin heels. I will dither. I will “waste” time–with impunity.
Because, as Brene Brown says, “exhaustion is not a status symbol.”
And after sitting in the coffee shop for three hours? I went home and took a long nap.
I could get used to this whole resting thing.
