It’s funny the things that stay with us… forever it seems. This evening after a long and hot day all I wanted to do was get home, crash on my bed, and immerse myself in the social oblivion for hours upon hours, doing what we all enjoy doing every once in a while. Okay, so maybe some of us do it more than others, but let’s not go down that rabbit hole right now. Not important!
Anyway, we finally made it home right around 5:30 p.m. Immediately clothes started coming off, my bed was cleared of anything in the way with one swift swipe, and the next thing in front of me were the snap stories of all of my friends. I then decided to record my own snaps to add to my story. You know the kind. I was complaining about how tired I was, sharing with everyone how all I wanted to do was lay down and do nothing (and yet here I was keeping myself busy by creating more content on social media).
The next thought to cross my mind was this one: what are you doing in bed in the middle of the day? That’s what the night is for!
It made me laugh and then it inspired me to share that exact thought on my Snapchat story. I didn’t get up, of course, but it did make me think about all the expressions like this one that I grew up hearing. That’s just the way we lived our life. We were always up to something. Always looking to make something happen. That’s who we are really. We hustle and we try our best to make things happen.
Sometimes it works out. Sometimes it doesn’t.
But it doesn’t mean we can’t deviate from the things we’re used to every once in a while. As my friend reminded shortly after: you know, naps in the middle of the day are one of the perks of working from home.
Okay, I’ll take it! Thank you for the reminder.
