Monday Morning Grandma: Make time for yourself

Monday isn’t over yet. I’ve been busy. I organized my filing cabinet, figured out a way to make more time for writing, and finished the book I was reading. Last weekend I had a glorious time at Time Out for Writers. It was like drinking from a fire hose—so much useful information, so many good friends. Tomorrow I will attack Hidden Heritage with a new fervor and knowledge.

We all need to take time to replenish ourselves. It may not be going to a writing conference, or any conference for that matter. We don’t even have to leave home. Take a long hot bath or shower. Go for a nature walk. Sit by a lake, ocean, river, or in a forest whatever is near you. A library is another good place to take time to refresh yourself. You cannot fill the water glasses of those around you with an empty pitcher.
