With the weekend in full swing, it’s time to take a little bit of time out for yourself. I have come to realize that with a young family, work responsibilities, and pandemic life, I have made less and less time to enjoy myself.

This weekend I decided to visit my family and friends. With childcare and a vaccination in place, I safely made it to the movies with some lifelong friends.
This experience helped me realize two things:
1) Spending time with my friends is therapeutic because it helps me feel well.
2) I have a great support system around me that will help if I just ask.

My hope is you are able to do something fun this weekend and become aware of supportive factors in your life. Friends, family, and favors are all signs you are loved and cared for.
