A friend sent me an email the other day and admitted she was already in "bah-humbug mode" as she called it—frustrated with the craziness and commercialism that tends to overtake Christmas. But that’s only if we let it. Like Becky said on Wednesday, this is a busy time of year. But it’s important to prioritize and take time to relax and focus on the true meaning of Christmas. Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed. Learn to say no if you have to. A pastor of ours always used to say that sometimes you have to say no to some good things to make room for the best things. So this weekend, we’re saying no to a few things to get away and enjoy family time.
How do you get away from it all? Authors, do you have a place to retreat to when you need to focus on your writing? Where do you go?
Have a great weekend and be sure to get some R&R!
