Today I read a book.
Usually I only read kids books out loud to my kids.
I finally ordered a book on Amazon that I’ve been wanting for a while and that I had gotten tired of waiting on the library for it to come in.
Chasing Excellence by Ben Bergeron (Review HERE)
It’s a fantastic book full of nuggets I needed to hear at this point in my life.
I had a million other things crying out for my attention: laundry, dishes, paying the bills, etc.
Instead, I sat at my kitchen table, coffee in hand, cat in lap, and read. Relaxing. Fulfilling. Restful. More productive than chores around the house. I fed the soul and the mind. What else is better use of my time?
I encourage you to take a bit of time for yourself today doing something you’ve been putting off that you’ve wanted to do for a while. Slow the pace. Breathe in the silence. Merge it with your soul. Enjoy the moment.
You’ll be glad you did.
