aaaaaaaaaaaahhhh. Sigh of relief, relaxation. With that, I am reminded of the words from Donalyn Miller at last weekend’s Literacy Conference. She said, “If reading is the inhale, then writing is the exhale.” This led me to thinking more about the truth of that statement. Then I had to thinking about what I’ve been inhaling lately (NO! Not that! :0)…
What have I chosen to read? Not much for myself lately other than professional books, blogs, and articles. I started reading “The Glass Castle” about a year and a half ago. I stopped reading it about a year ago. I did not finish it. I didn’t have time. The forever excuse of a mother and an educator. There just isn’t time to give myself. Well…there is. I just didn’t have that time prioritized for me.
Until now. Tonight, I’m going to finish that book. For me. Then, I’ll take your recommendations for my next great read. 🙂
Take some time for yourself. You deserve it! Then take your own great sigh of relief.
