My friend Cat messaged me out of the blue and asked me if I wanted to join her and her family and friends to their lake house in Caliraya for the long weekend. I looked at my schedule and saw that I had nothing on those dates and just said, “I’m coming along. Thank you.”

It just so happens that my brother and my sister-in-law will also be working through that weekend so I won’t be able to spend time with them either on Sunday for Family Day.

It’s as if the universe conspired that I would have a getaway with good people in a beautiful, relaxing environment where I can just unwind. I’ve been so stressed lately with all my deadlines and deliverables and being struck by this inability to write.

I’m really going crazy and I need some major attitude adjustment because I feel like I’m drowning here. It has not been getting easier as everything is delayed — by a day, by a week, for whatever stupid reason — and a chance to get away for a whole week just sounds like what the soul is asking.

Cat and her family always takes good care of me. They are some of the most generous souls I’ve ever met and I’m just so happy for them and their friendship. We will finally get to catch up and just reconnect.

This break will do me good.
