Busy week, busier weekend…

Every Sunday night I wonder anew

Why is it that my list of things to do

Is never complete, enough time I can never find

To complete all tasks and still be able to unwind

The weekend is meant to recharge and rejuvenate

But a busy work week does necessitate

That the weekend is spent on household chores

There is a pressure to add recreational activities some more

All socialization occurs on weekends too

Leaving me with less and less time to do

Everything I need to, there is not enough

Time to rest, Monday mornings are tough

At the beginning of a busy week I decide to make amends

I resolve to prioritize rest the following weekend

But the same story is repeated week after week

I lower expectations each time, as some respite I seek

From an over-scheduled life where I struggle constantly

To prioritize rest and relaxation for me


Maybe I just need to lighten my load

Leave some things to take care of down the road

Loosen up the uptight perfectionist inside

Take every day as it comes, in my stride

But I must first make relaxation a priority

The resolve to do so has given me much clarity
