Well we made it folks, another Friday has rolled around. This week has been up, down, and sideways in more ways than one – and that’s all I’m saying about that. Today’s post will be short though, since the brain isn’t wholly focused on the task at hand – apologies.
In life everyone has priorities. Some are awesome, some are okay, and others are just plain whacked. As authors we always think that writing should be our top priority. And, to a degree, that would be correct. But we also need to remember to stop and smell the roses from time to time. Not only is it a way to recharge the batteries, but it can help keep the voices in our heads in check.
Big or little, anything can work, and it all depends on you. Everyone is unique, what works for one may not work for another. Find what recharges you the best, and keep to it. Yes, you may need to evolve the technique over time, after all we all change as the years pass by. The biggest, and best (or so the parents on NQ assure me) is family time. It doesn’t matter what they do together, the whole point is to be – you’ve got it – together.
So take a walk, enjoy a film, get out camping if you’re the sort who enjoys unknown creatures trying to invade your tent (ick!), or whatever floats your boat and gets you charged back to 100%. Your mission this weekend, and you don’t have the choice to not accept it, is to step back and smell those roses, petunias, lavender, lilacs, daisies, or whatever your choice might be. Relax, recharge, and refresh body and mind.
