I must confess…I feel best when…
I feel best when I’m on holidays!
Gosh, haven’t the kids grown since our NZ trip two years ago?
And that’s where I am now. As you read this I’ll be road-tripping from Newcastle to the Gold Coast. We’re planning on spending a week touring the theme parks, visiting the beach, enjoying the amenities of our resort and tuning out from the world.
Which means I won’t be around much this week. It doesn’t mean I don’t care about your confessions, it just means I’m actually listening to my body (and my over-active mind) and finally taking a mini-break.
I haven’t taken a true break for a year now, not since we travelled to the US for our holiday of a lifetime (which was a year ago tomorrow – how fast did that year go?)
Since our return I’ve fallen into the habit of writing whenever I can, which means all hours of the day and night. Despite setting a schedule at the beginning of the year I haven’t been entirely successful at following it.
And so I tend to never commit to having a break – if I’m not doing something else, I feel the need to keep writing. So I do.
I need to step back and have a rest and recharge. I need to find a balance. I need to be okay with the idea of actually sitting still and doing nothing from time to time.
I know, what an amazing concept?!
So I’m looking forward to a week of being disconnected, to allow me to hopefully become more connected, to my family and to myself.
Follow me on facebook, twitter and instagram if you want to keep up with our adventures over the next week. While I’m disconnecting from here I won’t be able to stop myself posting the odd photo or two over there 🙂
And feel free to answer the prompt, “I feel best when…” I may not comment on your post immediately but I will definitely do so once I’m back from my break.
