There are times in your life when you need to take a break from your To Do list.
April is an extremely busy month for me with a multitude of deadlines. It is one of those times where it is easy to feel guilty about not working on something on the list. However, this weekend I remembered that life is short and there are times when it is necessary to take a break from the To Do’s and simply Do something I enjoy.
The weather this weekend was absolutely beautiful. Of course when James suggested we spend Sunday afternoon at Keeneland Race Track, of course I said yes.
Keeneland is one of my favorite places to go. The grounds are simply stunning but you are also watching some of the most beautiful animals on earth.
Saturday’s meet had an attendance of over 36,000 people and although Sunday was crowded, it was no where near that attendance (thankfully). We spent the afternoon enjoying the races (no big winners here), people watching (the variety of outfits is amazing) and enjoying some great Makers Mark Summer Breeze (I had to have more than one).
Yes, I came home to my To Do list but by taking a break from the list; I was able to enjoy a great afternoon in beautiful weather in a beautiful setting with my husband. In the past I may have turned down this opportunity but I continue to realize the importance of enjoying life and not turning down opportunities. The To Do list can often wait. I am grateful I have learned this lesson.
Have you taken a break from your own To Do list? I challenge you to take a break sometime this week.
