It was a week of learning about myself.
Do you ever have a week like that?
A week where you discover stuff about yourself that you weren’t even looking for?
We spent the week in Florida for a baseball tournament. A week of spring break. A week of family. A week of and sunshine and warm weather and baseball games and the joy of watching number 11 run home again and again I brought tons of work and writing and chapters to work on for the next book.
There wasn’t any internet.
I couldn’t work. I couldn’t write. I couldn’t research. I couldn’t post to this blog (except for the one post that was already written and scheduled).
At first I was frustrated. And irritated. And discombobulated.
But you know what?
In the end, it ended up being amazing.
I played more card games that you can count and fixed lunches and read books and listened to stories and took long walks on the beach and soaked in the sun.
And I learned that everyone needs a little break.
Everyone needs a week to run and walk and read and listen…
….and to just be.
Thank you Florida for mine. 🙂
