As a sit here on a train bound for Zurich, I am so excited to be escaping my life for one day!
Originally, this was supposed to be a work trip, but that project went to hell in hand basket ( that is another story) Now what? I could stick to the original plan and go hang in a very cool city, which I sadly have not had much of a chance to do in the twelve years that I have been a Swiss resident or just stay at home and do the same old thing.
Needless to say I grabbed my train ticket and I was off. As I mentioned in my first post: https://ledivorcee.com/2016/09/08/beinvenue-au-club/, the universe is always conspiring in my favor. When one door closes, another always opens. So in addition to exploring the city, I have a lunch meeting at a tres chic restaurant and after will meet an old colleague for cocktails.
I am an only child and have always relished my alone time. However the adult me gets lost in the shuffle of trying to be the best mother, friend, and human I can be. As Elenor Brown, so eloquently said “Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.”
So off, I go to explore Zurich and take a much needed break to take care of ME!
