Rest & Recuperation

The last day of February and Ottawa (where I live) had snow and freezing rain ... a typical late Winter day in this city I have called home for close to 30 years. Its around this time of year I wonder how I came to live here, and why I stay!!! Of course its a beautiful city with lots of redeeming qualities, but right about this time of year they can be a little hard to remember! Long ago I came to the realization that in order to keep my usually positive outlook on life I needed to get away at some point during the long Ottawa Winter and enjoy some sunshine and beach! So ... here I am penning a quick message from my hotel room on Mexico's Mayan Riviera a couple of days into my "sun fix"! No sign of drug lords, sharks in the water or resorts exploding ... just sun, sand and relaxing by the pool! I don't intend to spend too much time thinking about work or the gruelling training I will be coming back to in preparation for my boxing match on March 26th. I am keeping a pretty good fitness routine, eating quite well but best of all catching up on rest and relaxation. Sometimes we just have to be extra nice to ourselves ... its my time! Not sure if I'll write again before hitting the office ... but I hope anyone reading this gets the chance to be extra nice to themselves very soon! Until then walk fast and smile ... unless you are lying on a beach somewhere and then a silly grin will work just fine! ----------------------------------------------- Kevin Dee is CEO of Eagle (a Professional Staffing Company) Want to know where Canada's hot jobs are?
