One of my favorite things to do is to walk along the beach and listen to the uplifting recordings I’ve made for myself — recordings about who I want to be, how I want to live my life, and inspiration to connect more deeply with the world.

Yesterday morning kicked off a weekend “writercation.” I had blocked off these two days long ago to focus on some of the many things my writer self needs to do as prep for my upcoming book launch in April.

I took myself to Pacifica and it was a glorious morning. I then spent a lot of the day creating new web pages that are linked in my book via QR codes. It was wonderful!

All too often the days are jam-packed with errands, calls, and so many responsibilities. Having a wide expanse of time for creative projects feels like such a huge gift to myself.


Do you block time off on your calendar for YOU? For the projects and dreams you have? How often? Where do you go? What sorts of projects do you work on?

I love hearing people’s stories of intentional living! Do tell!
