I love to read, but it has been quite some time since I picked up a book and read for the pure pleasure of reading. Life has just been getting in the way. There is always laundry, dishes, diapers, and life in general that keeps me from taking time for myself.

Things have been getting to me more easily lately. I have decided that it is important to give myself a little time to do something I enjoy, even if I have not finished all my work for the day. So, last night I bought the book Brilliance by Marcus Sakey. I made it through the first 80 pages and it seems good so far. I do feel more relaxed after taking some time to do something I enjoy.

Do something nice for yourself. Take time to do something you enjoy. All the chores will still be waiting for you when you get done!
