Brake for Spontaneity!

A friend and I years ago did Cheryl Richardson’s Life Makeovers.  It was broken down into “52 practical and inspiring ways to improve your life one  week at a time”.

Brake for Spontaneity

I curled up with Cheryl recently and was flipping through the book and found Brake for Spontaneity. I thought it was appropriate for all of us at the moment, as we are running around madly trying to squeeze everything in.  The book goes on to say we should book time of us – even if it means scheduling it in. Cheryl Richardson says it better than I could “By creating the space to live in the moment, we strengthen the connection to our inner wisdom and give ourselves a much-needed rest from the routine of day-to-day living.”

So make an appointment for today, tomorrow or next week just for you.  A massage, an afternoon curled up with a magazine, a walk in the park or a nap in the afternoon.  It is a hectic time of year and we’ll appreciate all our events if we take a breath and re-energize so put the brakes on for you!

    1. Especially at this time of year I think everything is ramped up. So important to step back and take a breath – maybe that means hiding!!! I’m off today to hopefully get items crossed off the list. have a good one.

  1. This is very timely for me, as I’ve just published a post about the importance of downtime. I love this quote – will have to add it to my list of printables! 🙂 Sue via Big up your Blog
