I have vacation brain and it is great. I took one week off, for the first time in four years, and I have been pleasantly surprised to get reacquainted with my real self. My real self looks something like this:
My real self feels balanced often. Not most of the time but at least a few times a day.
My real self breathes in and out during the day, at a regular pace. I can feel myself breathing on vacation, and it feels good.
My real self has creative thoughts about the future and a million writing ideas.
My real self looks at my hectic, regular self with wonder. How do I get like that and why don’t I stop?
My real self is waaaaay sweeter to my husband, and more energetic with my son.
My real self is awesome. How can I get her to show up more often?
