Sunday Reflections: There Should Always Be An Ultimate Break

It's been a while since I took a "real" break. The months of unemployment do not count because I was constantly stressing and searching for a job. However, from the moment I started working my hardest task was learning to take breaks.

Breaks are essential to life. They help you find your sanity point once again. However, after stressing for so long I wasn't sure how to gain the sane moments back. I thought it would come with a job, but the job only reminded me of how much I needed a break.

The first break was supposed to come in March of 2011. During that month one of my best friends got married. I was originally supposed to be one of her bridesmaids, but money troubles kept that from happening. Then I was supposed to attend the wedding as a guest, but money troubles and family issues kept that from happening. However, I didn't let it get to me too much. I then planned for another (hopefully achievable) break.

This break was supposed to be a trip to California either at the end of the summer or for my birthday. California isn't happening either though, but there's a better reason then money troubles for the prevention of this trip. I'm not doing this trip because my best friend wants me to be in Hawaii for her graduation and birthday in May of 2012.

There should always be an ultimate break. Some should come sooner than others, but they should always happen. Ultimate breaks are what helps to return a smile on a person's face. This one will definitely be ultimate because I'll see my best friend again. It's been too long since we've been separated. Talking on the phone or texting almost every day isn't enough. This will be a much needed ultimate break.

Until that ultimate break that should always happen to everyone, I'm continually taking little breaks. These involve moments at the park, going shopping, movies, and hanging with friends. This weekend I had one of those breaks that really took any stress away. I was able to see old high school friends. It was a refreshing reunion and it was nice to not roll solo for once. It was also nice to roll with people that didn't have any set curfew.

Everyone needs a break where they can really feel relaxed. When was the last time you had one? When was the last time you planned one? Start today, because it makes you feel much better. Our goals shouldn't just involve hard work. They should also involve lots of fun.
