Sometimes You Just Gotta Relax

There are times in our lives, when we just need to put aside what we think is important and relax. The world isn’t going to come to an end if we don’t get it done today. Nothing for as I’m concerned is ASAP. The way I see it. A day ends at 5pm. Seriously. Most business close at 5. You can’t handle a crisis after 5pm in most cases, so chill and it can be taken care of the next day.

Today I decided to do just that. No ASAP’s, no housework, no yardwork…just me going out to enjoy the day. Honestly I didn’t do anything special. The whole point was to get out of the house by myself and enjoy some me time. I decided to go to one of my favorite places in Houston for a burger, Beck’s Prime on Westheimer Road. If you look through my blog,  you’ll find an article I wrote last year about this great little place.

To sit back sipping on an ice cold fresh iced tea, enjoying a burger topped with nothing but swiss cheese and hickory sauce…being shaded by a 400 year old oak tree. Yes, I said 400 years old. The only sounds I could here were the birds, the black birds landing on the chairs next to me as if they were to say “Hey, glad you’re here” and fly off.

It’s times like these that we forget about. Taking time for ourselves. So when people get on your nerves, the kids won’t shut up, your spouse thinks chores have to be done right now…slip away for some quiet time…and a good ol’ fashion hamburger.

Seriously, Life can be Good.
