Today Do Something for Yourself…

Today I read a book.Image result for reading a book with coffee in hand

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.
