Read a Good Book

I don’t know about you, but this series has been really good for me. I’ve been so much more mindful of how I’m spending my time. After several months of letting good habits slide, I’m getting back into some good ones. I’ll be talking about each one this week.

Today? Read a good book! Just for fun.

I’m thoroughly enjoying several of these. Haven’t dug into the last, but I’ve heard great things. And I love the down time.

Reading a good book is a great way to stop and smell the roses.

The days are long, but the years are short. I don’t want to miss them! For more short and sweet ideas on how to stop and smell the roses, to enjoy the little things in life, check out my 31 Days to Smell the Roses series [10].
