With all the hard topics and sights going on right now, I decided I needed some more positivity in my life again.

I’m not saying those hard topics aren’t worth discussing, I did my share of that over the last week, but I did feel the need to take a break from all of that and just enjoy some time doing things I loved this last week.

That time began with playing the board game Settlers of Catan digitally with my nephew and dad who are back in Lethbridge and my brother who’s in Ontario.

The game itself didn’t go according to plan (I lost by a fairly wide margin) but it was an enjoyable couple of hours with family.

Another thing that gave me something to look forward to was when two of my sisters decided they’d like to come do a hike with me.

We’ve now set the 14th as our date to conquer Turtle Mountain together.

Then came Thursday evening.

One of my friends from Lethbridge came out for our first day on the golf course.

Those few hours out on the course with the sun peaking through the clouds after a rainy day were picture perfect. (Quite literally. We took a ton of photos)

Our final scores might not look overly pretty and we may not have actually finished our round due to all our photo taking but it was a great evening spent whacking (and loosing) golf balls.

The final cherry on top was going for a walk with my sister and brother-in-law who invited me out for ice cream.

They spent the weekend in the Pass celebrating their anniversary and I’m grateful they let me crash one of their evenings.

I think it’s good for everyone to find blocks of time like this during the days and weeks we live.

It’s a positive thing for people to just pause and take some time for themselves.

It’s not selfish; it’s necessary.

With everything going on in the world right now, whether it’s the continuation of the pandemic or the protests across North America, it’s important to take some time and unwind.

Go for a walk, play games with your family, read a book or just relax.

Take some time to ensure your mental and physical well being is still looked after.

I hope everyone is staying safe, healthy and happy as we continue to navigate this world we live in.
