|My computer needed a rest. I was a bit ready for one myself. Am I going to grow old with my lap top strapped to me?|
I took a break. A rather long break. And while it felt good, I had to work at not reacting to those demon voices in my head. I decided I'd let them talk, and I could listen if I wanted, but it didn't mean I had to take heed. And so, I took a break, senza sensi de colpa (without guilt).

It wasn't difficult to put my computer away for a bit. It was, however, kind of painful that I wasn't posting my next blog or responding to emails. But, to live Bodeci means to take a rest when you work hard. And, so I did.
When I was young, before kids and never ending responsibilities, I had plenty of time to fissare intorno (lay around) and still get stuff done. But, after nearly twenty-three years of motherhood coupled with the role of breadwinner, I don't know how to just be these days. I am reawakened to myself and there are times when I need to become still and simply be. It was one of those weekends.
Mi e' piaciuto! (I loved it!)
When was the last time you took a break from your computer, cell phone or "to do" list? What did you do differently? How did it feel? I am living to find out!
