Where my nightly Tuesday workout normally falls, I filled that time slot with the most mouth-watering and unbelievable dinner with a friend I desperately needed to catch up with. I turned over my to-do list, and replaced my menial tasks with people, and engagements that actually mattered.
It was a breathe of fresh air amidst a final week of my first post-grad job, and as I embrace the craziness that is life at a new one (which I am STOKED about), I am entirely thankful for that pause. Because sometimes you really require getting lost in the good and important things in life.
