“Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.” — William S. Burroughs
The past couple of days I haven’t done much in the way of writing. If some of you don’t see much change in the pacing of these posts then it’s because I wrote them in advance.
Look, as much as I’m for hard work, I’m equally as much for giving yourself a break. Especially now during the summer lull.
To be honest, most of my time since last Thursday has gone into spending time with the people I love. That’s a solid 4 days without any real writing or working.
Had this been just a couple of years ago I would’ve felt guilty, thought about all the missed opportunities, and probably tried to compensate by working my ass off for a month straight.
Fortunately, I can afford to make other choices now and realize that it’s OK to not do things that I perhaps “should”.
While we can’t slouch our way to the top, it’s OK to give yourself a break every once in a while.
The only people you’re really accountable to are the people you love and to yourself.
When’s the last time you gave yourself a real break that wasn’t a vacation or holiday? How did you spend it?
