DianaLand has been quiet these past few weeks and that’s a good thing. I needed a rest. Or at least my body said it’s time to take a long hiatus. I’ve read books, made a few t-shirts and scrapbooked a few pages. Now I feel better. I’m not quite back to ME yet, the person who can write a thousand words in a few hours, plan for dinner, contact my friends and do the laundry seemingly at the same time. I’m not sure I want to be that person anymore.
Because I realize (and this is not the first time, I’m a slow learner) that every moment I’m here is a time that God gave me to use to His glory and in his way. Maybe I don’t need to do double and triple duty with every minute have. Maybe it is okay to enjoy the task at hand. Just because I can do more than one thing at a time doesn’t mean I should.
So for the rest of this month anyway I’m going to give my full attention to the task of the day. That means this month a class by Margie Lawson, Empowering Characters’ Emotions. Yes, I’m going back to school even if it is in my own office. I’m excited about this class. As I look through the material I am encouraged. This is a graduate level course and something I’ve been looking for to improve my writing. If you are a writer I encourage you to take a look at her courses www.margielawson.com Thank you Jenny Cary, my writer friend for telling me about Margie’s classes!
Here are a few photos of what else I’ve done this month to relax and to check off of my 50 things to do before my 51rst birthday.
We took a Saturday trip. The first in a very long time.
