Every now an then, its good to have some 'do nothing' slack time. Around our house we are usually go go go... so those rare moments are hard to find. A few weeks ago, we have a lighter than normal weekend that started out with a quinceanera. A what? Thats right. Its the right of passage party in Spanish culture for girls. Kind of like a sweet sixteen party, but they do it at 15 years old. And these get very elaborate. Sometimes more than a wedding! You should see the dresses and shoes and other stuff that goes along with this celebration ...
So, this picture above is us at the party. We had a great time, and got a chance to see some friends that we had not seen in a long time. Four or five hours later ... we were off to our home for some rest and relaxation.
Step one in achieving the perfect slack day is to find the perfect spot to lounge. It is important that this location be comfortable and free from distractions (like work or ... a tribe of kids).
Step two is to make sure that when distractions come your way, that you don't let them knock you out of your lounging spot... as you can see in the picture, I lost this battle.
Step three... listen carefully. This is the most important step of all. Every now and then you need to STOP DOING STUFF!! ... sit back. ...appreciate the blessings that you have been given. Now go out there and SLACK!!
