I hope you are enjoying our daily prompts! But today my friends I want you to know this: It’s okay to press pause if you need to.
You don’t have to write every single day. Maybe you read somewhere that that is what “real writers” or “successful writers” do. Nonsense. Down time has its value too. And times are challenging enough right now. Don’t put that burden on yourself. If you’re feeling creative, go for it! But if you’re feeling scattered, used up, exhausted, stressed, numb, it’s okay to simply rest and recharge. In fact, it’s more than okay. It’s good for you.
All over the world, there is evidence that our beautiful planet is responding favorably to the decrease in human activity. If the earth can take a breath, certainly you and I can.
Your “prompt” for today then is to hit the pause button, if only for 15 minutes. Breathe. Close your eyes. Turn off the news. Let these 15 minutes of your life go unrecorded, un-Instagrammed, un-Tweeted. When you are rested and ready, I promise you, the page or the keyboard will still be there waiting for you.
Rest and be well, my friends. Here is some beauty for you to enjoy:
