Time away

GH consolation prizeI’ve just returned from Alabama where I attended my first Reader’s Luncheon as an Attending Author. Even though, I was not fully prepared for the extent of the swag (all I had was a $50.00 gift card to offer.  I felt such a kinship with the Little Drummer Boy) it was a wonderful time.  Many of the readers I spoke with spoke about how meaningful it was to have an afternoon to themselves away from their every day lives.  A number of them spoke of children or an aging parent to care for.

I have been thinking about the need for self-care in the first blog post of the month.  So this time, in June, I’m thinking  how important it is to schedule time away from the cares of life.  Believe me, scheduling that time is something that I still am working on.   I’m not really sure how I should answer. What do I do to “get away” from the pressures of my life? While I think about it, feel free to let me know what how  you “get away” in the comments.

It’s necessary to find time for yourself–another crucial aspect of #selfcare.

  1. I just finished reading, A Sweet Way to Freedom and I feel so inspired. Mrs. Huguley authors like you not only inspire me but you shake me up to stop sitting on my own God given talents. Right now I’m feeling encouraged and ready for the new year.
    God Blessings,

    • I so appreciate that kind comment, Lark! Whenever I think about the sacrifices the ancestors have made, I feel the same way. I’m so glad you enjoyed Arlo and Missy’s story! Thank you for commenting!
