that’s right. I chose to stay in, drink wine, watch re-runs of the office and feel sorry for myself that my boyfriend left for grad school today and I have to go through another year of long-distance.
But you know what? I’m happy I said no to the running and yes to a night of me. Sometimes we need to throw away our guilt and be content with the fact that we’re going to want lazy nights, we’re going to be sad sometimes and we’re going to choose the easy over the difficult.

Do you take time for you?
