You made it.

Take a moment to congratulate yourself for another semester finished. Maybe you rocked it, maybe you didn’t, but either way, you deserve a rest.

Treat yourself. Have a book you’ve been itching to read? Was there a personal project you’ve been meaning to start? Maybe you haven’t been to the movies in ages and you need a large bag of popcorn to yourself. Or maybe you need to hibernate—no judgement. Just do it.  

Whatever your situation, I hope you find a way to enjoy some peace this winter break. Some good ol’ fashioned relaxation is the biggest gift of the holiday season. So put your feet up and rest awhile.

You earned it.
