Oh Me Oh My: The Power of a Break

Power of a break

It’s been a six-week hiatus for me. I think this may well be the longest extended time I’ve been without blogging. There has been so much going on in my life in other areas, and as much as I wanted to write, I just didn’t find myself willing nor able.

The most crucial ailment to any writer is that BLOCK and that power of a BREAK. I don’t know what it’s like for others, but for me, it comes without any warning, for no apparent reason, and not for any just cause. I can’t say that a significant life event happened, which was the root of this or that. Not at all.

We all need to take a break sometimes. Oddly, though, many people leave their vacation time unused. Whether you take a vacation, a staycation, or a playcation, it’s important to take a break from the job, the routine, and the demands of life in order to keep stress levels in check.

When we take a break, we’re not shirking responsibility; we’re taking care of ourselves so we’ll have the stamina to be our best.
