Recharge Your Battery

I crawled into bed, turned off the lamp and noticed my room pitch black. The nightlight was off. My daughter and I have this thing about, “As soon as you get into bed, you notice the nightlight is off and it’s across the room!”

The nightlight is a battery operated candle, and I love the glow it gives the room at night. It’s very soothing, until the batteries die. I got out of bed, walked across the room, pulled it down from it’s shelf, and jiggled the switch.

Nope. It was dead. (Dramatic music)

I walked into the hallway for batteries.

I remembered from previous experience, the batteries are a tight fit. A screwdriver helped pry them out. It’s not worth breaking a nail over. Once the batteries were replaced, it was ready to shine.


My thought was, I wanted my batteries to be changed as easily as this nightlight. Just pop out the tired ones, and replace with new. Ours are a little more complex, but I bet you know some things you can do this weekend to recharge.

Learn to rest and not quit. Take some time to recharge your battery.

  1. Resting at home and keeping myself to myself, or walking out in nature to recharge.

    Last night thought, I had an earlier night than usual and with not being at work today, I allowed myself 2 hours extra in bed this morning.
    I plan to have an early night tomorrow. Whether I will need it tonight, I don’t know. Shall see after my day out.

  2. I’m in need of a recharge this weekend … not sure how it’ll come with a heavier workload now and being pulled into the office for my third Saturday in a row. So, it’s Sunday to unwind and decompress fully. Domestic chores, cooking, exercise, writing and a bit of nothingness figure in my resolve. Lovely post, Barb. 🙏

    1. Do whatever feeds your soul. Kayaking sounds relaxing and cooking replenishes. This week I found myself just standing in the sun. It felt so good to my skin after winter. It doesn’t have to be realistic to be beautiful. ❤
