Too often, we get so busy with our humongous lists of things to do, that we fail to pause (let alone stop) and recognize our accomplishments. Aside from missing out on the fun of doing just that, we also can cheat ourselves out of a sense of satisfaction with our lives.
Part of managing your stress level is to find balance in your life. To pace yourself. To have silly fun times as well as the more serious focused times. So whether your most recent accomplishment is a new book, a video for your blog, a chocolate cake made from scratch (what the heck, celebrate even if you used a boxed mix)… learn to pat yourself on the back.
If you’re active in any of the social media like Facebook and Twitter, go ahead and post a quick blurb about what you’ve done. It really feels good to be part of the human race, instead of plodding along working like a drone and not even letting others know what is going on in your life.
So, ahem, I’d like to announce my supernatural mystery novel, called “The Calico Tapestry” — it’s now available in paperback at amazon.com and you can buy it by clicking now: The Calico Tapestry
