Sometimes You Just Have to Take a Little Time to P.L.A.Y.!

Sometimes you just have to take a little time to P.L.A.Y.

addicted to computer

 

I've been trying to write a post every day and so far, knock wood, I've been doing this since December.  Now for many of the super prolific bloggers here, this is just peanuts! They do it every day and have been doing so for a lot longer than a few months.

Normally I try to write late in the afternoon for the next day's post.  Up around 6, post it, then off to walk.  Doesn't always work out that way, though.  Last night I sat poised... fingers over the keyboard... ready to write.....  NOTHING.... NADA... ZIP!!!

 

So I decided it was time to take a break.  I have all day Saturday to think of something and besides even if I don't ... if I miss a day... the world will still turn. 

But-t-t-t- I've been so good for so long.  I really want to keep this up.  I'm still going to play today and maybe it will shake out the cobwebs  for tomorrow's post.

If you're running at a fast pace... if your plate is full ... it's Saturday... take some time to:

Play

 

P- Put off the things you think you need to do!

L- Let go of the things weighing you down.

A- ActiveRain-Lite.... just for one day.  I know it's so easy to be here all day... so much to learn, so many posts to read but take the Lite version today.  We'll still be here tomorrow when you come back.

Y-Put some focus on YOU.... I'm not saying to be selfish... just do some things that make YOU happy.  That may mean spending time with the family... in the yard.... by yourself... whatever it is, just do it.

Now... go off and have a great day.   I'm outta here!

Adam- Isn't it funny that as adults we have to learn to Play

Debra- thanks!! I hope you played this weekend!

Hiilary- Even if we just take a step away... grab the phone and call a good friend, take a walk around the block, or, my favorite... go to the mall... it helps.

Bob- compliments well received!!!

Kathy- thank you!  Hope you weekend was a great one and that this week will be a good one for you.

Linda-Thank you, Linda, It's become part of my "job" and honestly I love it!

Kathy, congrats on feature. Great post. I feel like sometimes there is nothing wrong with being selfish.  I had couple days off unexpectedly because my lap top died so I had to buy a new netbook and transfer data to it. I am exited because this new netbook small and light weight and can fit into my Staging Consultation purse. Almost at every consultation I feel like I would show an example of how the space  should look like and have to wait until I'll get home and send an e-mail to my client. Not anymore.

Diane- Weekend was great and started the week off with lunch with good ActiveRain friends!

Anna- Thank you so much.  It's always fun to get a new toy (your netbook) but at the same time just getting everything back in order can be stressful.  Isn't it nice to be able to have everything at your fingertips.
