I am weary today, very weary.
Each time I notice the sting in my bloodshot eyes and a yawn escapes my mouth I give myself a little nudge, a knowing hug.
I am tired and it was all worth it.
I liken this weariness to the achey sore muscles I have the day after a huge workout. The sore reminder of time spent taking care of myself and strengthening my body.
Today I am experiencing the fatigue that comes from an entire weekend of using my social muscle. It was flexible, it was switched on and it was awesome.
I spent my weekend in the company of incredible friends and family.
Today’s weariness is a beautiful reminder of the many hours spent laughing, talking, eating, drinking and enjoying each other’s company.
Today’s weariness is only the beginning of a month-long social extravaganza, a month I love and adore, the month of Christmas.
I will catch up and see most of my friends and of course my family, some I may even see several times.
It will be tiring, exhausting, exhilarating and fun.
I love it, I love it, I love it!
Now it’s time to bank a few early nights before the next social marathon.
Christmas a fabulous time of year.
