Some of you may remember those old battery commercials about the Energizer Bunny featuring the rabbit with the drum who would “Just keep going and going and going and going…”. (I don’t watch much TV anymore – is that guy still around?)
The bunny had his pros and cons. At face value it looks pretty darn awesome to have that much energy! To just keep going! (And going!) Forever! I’ve had a week of doing my best to emulate that rabbit. Get the kids to school (just keep going…), get to work (and going…), work all morning/workout over lunch/resume work (and going…), get the kids/make dinner/clean up/hockeyhockeyhockey/check homework (and going…), kids in bed/Ph.D. studies (and going…), chat with the hubs/pack snacks & lunch & water gallon for the next day (and going…), wake up and do it all the next day! (and going…)
I know I’m not the only one with this type of nutty crazy schedule – we’re all so busy! It’s great to feel so productive and accomplish so many wonderful things in the day. That said, the Energizer Bunny also seemed a little boring. All he did was bang that dang Energizer drum all day. I truly believe it’s so important to work as hard as you can but then also play as hard as you can. This weekend is Superbowl Sunday. I don’t necessarily enjoy football but I love the eating and commercials. I truly believe that having something fun to look forward to is super important for mental health and overall well being. So this weekend, I’m seriously looking forward to playing hard (and eating mountains of greasy food). 🙂
Until then, I’ll just keep going and going and going and going…
Rest up and enjoy that grease! Sounds like you deserve it 🙂 Oh, and I think I have seen that bunny lately. Maybe he’ll make an appearance during the superbowl!
