It’s incredible how fast another month flies by and I’m up for another turn at W&W. How did it get to be July already?? Summer is my crazy time, time when I have no idea which end is up and which is sideways. Between prepping as a vendor for four prides…
whipping out last minute Obama quote shirts after the amazing 6-26-15 Supreme Court announcement for pride:
making t-shirts, hoodies, and sweatshirts for the annual Golden Crown Literary Society conference:
doing book promo, editing and beta-ing others works-in-progress, working at my beloved Once Upon a Crime Mystery Bookstore, and maintaining the internet sales we have day-to-day, I sometimes feel like my head’s about to pop off.
(That’s the coolest head-popping-off pic I could find–I had no idea what gruesome stuff I was out there when I googled head-popping-off images! And I in NO way think I’m a superhero, so just ignore that part.)
Anyway, I know I need to find time for a few moments respite, some quiet time, a little reprieve from the crazy-ass day to day. My question to you, dear readers, is this: where do you find your peace? What do you do to take the edge off, to chill, to cool your jets? I have lots of ideas but none that I’m going to have time to make happen in the foreseeable future. Do you have “quick mentally refreshing fixes” you employ through your day? My shrink says it’s all about “self-care” and get your mind out of the gutter (although I know the gutter is one great way for a little steam release!)
So let’s have a stress busting conversation, and see what tips and ideas we can all share to not only help me, but any and all of our awesome readers here at W&W!
Ready, set, GO!
