Sometimes it’s really important to take a little extra time for You. Especially when you find yourself in a pattern of giving your time to other people, projects and priorities. So that’s exactly what I did this past weekend with my boyfriend. We each took Monday off from work to spend an extra day in Carrabassett Valley working on getting his apartment ready for winter lodging and enjoying a hike up the mountain. Before we know it Sugarloaf will be white with snow and skiing season will be upon us. It was refreshing to get outside, move our muscles, take some fresh deep breathes and enjoy the sights of Maine landscape. It was a pick-you-head-up-and-appreciate-the-greatness-all-around kind of weekend (and Monday!). If you’ve been feeling a crunch this fall, take a little time for You, too. It’s worth it.
