retreating

“Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, 
for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. 
Go some distance away because then 
the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance 
and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.”
~ Leonardo da Vinci

When I recently recapped the past few months for my family abroad, I got tired reading through my calendar of past events. Now I realize why my blog is lagging behind on my life! When you’re busy living, it takes away from the time writing.

Since this week is supposed to be a retreat, I’m going to relax about my online journal and take a break from it, too. There will be strolls in parks, pampering in the spa, girly gatherings, along with business learning.

“Relaxation means releasing all concern and tension 
and letting the natural order of life flow through one’s being.”
 ~ Donald Curtis 

I may not be able to truly disconnect from the online world, but I can at least take the pressure off myself by taking a blog vacation. Many people are taking a summer break, after all.

“Happiness consists of living each day as if
it were the first day of your honeymoon and
the last day of your vacation.”
