today i played video games (super mario bros. to be precise) for a few hours and laughed and ate delicious snacks and just relaxed. it was pretty awesome.
so many of my days are filled with to-do lists and tasks to be completed. today was just about having fun. and letting all of the responsibilities and deadlines sit still for a little while. i think this is the kind of self-care i will be repeating often this year. slowing down. making room for play. and not feeling guilty about it.
