Feelings and reflections on a Sunday evening

Dear Monday,
I think it's time we went our separate ways! I appreciate the way you represent "new beginnings", but frankly speaking...I feel so tired when I'm in your presence!
I feel tense the night before we meet and I sometimes even dread spending time with you.
There is never a good time to tell you this, but I have met someone else who I
wish to spend the rest of my life with: Saturday! I know we shall meet again - but for now; So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye.

Oh how wish this weekend would last forever... I'm truly thankful for the extra hour.......really! It couldn't have come at a better time!
I am sooooooo relaxed and have no desire at all to go back to the madness of being in the middle of high-season at work, having constant pressure and always feeling like you are chasing after the train... This is what a little distance will make you feel ;) Especially after a weekend of completely calm surroundings with the exception of a waitress or waiter dropping a fork...or a little rain dripping down on a metal roof somewhere close by.....or the sound of bubbling jacuzzis.....or possibly having to rush to your next spa-treatment!
Oh sweet life! How I wish I could be in your arms just a liiiiiittle longer!

Surely, after 10 minutes back in reality tomorrow I will find myself back again! Back in that rythm from which I find most of my daily adrenalin kicks and I will be dancing along like I was never away at all..... It's a funny thing.....work-life!
Don't get me wrong! I actually really love my job, it would just be a first class lie if I said I didn't enjoy my free-time more.....if I didn't, I would rather question my sanity than my work-ethics....if you know what I mean!?

Neuschwanstein was truly magnificent!!! If you are ever in the region of Bavaria in Germany, don't miss this little gem hidden at the foot of the mountains - surrounded by magical forests and turqoise lakes.......enchanting!

I know I will go back!! I just have to! Such a charming little place has to be viewed in all its seasonal spectrum! ...and since it's only 2.5 hours away? Well ;))
The only down-side is that if you want to have the perfect view-point for pictures - YOU NEED A HELICOPTER (alternatively be willing to risk your life under extreme climbing conditions)!! In all honesty, it was enough for me just seeping in the magical atmosphere of being in it's presence....and for once, I even enjoyed the guided tour! Quite an interesting story. Probably because I've always had a thing for unsolved mysteries and crime-novels!

Now time for me to do as little as possible during the last few hours of my magical weekend and will leave you with yet another Deepak Chopra quote:
"Your true essence is beyond the ego. It is fearless and free! It is immune to criticism. It does not fear any challenge. It is beneath no one."

Be the best you can be!! YOU are more than you think you are, just ask your family and friends - they will confirm ;)
I hope I will see you here soon again....
