Take Some Time For Yourself This Holiday

Filed under: Creating Success,Goals,Holiday,Inspiration — Laura R @ 2:13 PM

Everyone has holiday plans this weekend, hopefully enjoying time with family and friends,
more hopefully enjoying a few good meals.

When you can spare a half hour I encourage you to take some time for yourself
to slow down and enjoy the world around you
and the good things happening in your life.

I’d like to share a free e-book download with you from the site Writing Our Way Home. 
You can save it for when you have a few quiet minutes to yourself
and you can share it with friends.

I know those of you that enjoy the writing prompt online memes and the weekly parties
that ask you to answer questions will enjoy this short but very worthy gift.

For those who read the e-book or visit the writing community and want to know more about the July River of Stones challenge, click here.

I know you will enjoy and appeciate the rest of the site, please investigate the writing community, and if you have not become acquainted with Eric Maisel, begin with this interview.  He is a MUST MEET person no matter what form your creativity takes.  (New website launching mid July)
For those of you who just glance and think this interview seems too new-agey or off center for you, let me add other thinkers of the Noetic Science variety include Norman Vincent Peale,
J.R. Oppenheimer, Ernest Holmes, and Benjamin Franklin.

Celebrities thinking along the same lines include Will and Jada Smith,
(10 min video of him speaking on how to get the most of life)
 John Travolta,  Lady Gaga and of course Oprah.

I will be back to posting after this holiday week.



  1. It’s too hot here to do anything! I’ll enjoy visiting the links you posted. thanks!

    Happy, Waggin’ Tails, FUREVER!

  4. You said you’d cook if I’d do the dishes. DEAL! I’ve often joked with my husband that if we ever had money to burn, the first extravagance we’d splurge on is a private cook/chef – at least part of the time! 🙂

  5. so you are telling me to take it easy… something I’ve been known to do ( a lot!) and then you give me homework to do while relaxing??? Okay, where is my treasure finding friend and what have you done to her? I hope you are at least feeding the animals for her 😉
    Happy Independence Day, sweetie!
