ok - who am I trying to kid here??? I have no spare time...it's merely time when I can't sleep and SHOULD be sleeping but my mind is blasting at a rate that would put most turbo-rocket-boosters to shame!
But in this time-that-I-call-"spare" I have just read this book
and I will be so cliche as to say I LOVED IT! I didn't really LOVE it, I just really got what she was saying. And I think there is a lot to be said about taking time to quiet yourself in this sometimes over-saturated, fast-paced, instantly-gratifying day and age.
Take the time to stop and smell the flowers.
Write a loved one a letter (not email) that tells them how much they mean to you.
Learn something or do something that you've always wanted to do.
Step outside your comfort zone and be still - for hours on end - just to remind yourself that you are still in control.
I thought it was a good book and I highly recommend it for its relaxed style of writing (it's an easy read) as well as the deeper sentiments it discusses.
Now I'm off to spend my non-spare time framing and packing. Packing and framing. Framing and packing.
Need I say more?
