Even the Mind Needs to be Recharged

“If you neglect to recharge a battery, it dies.  And if you run full speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race.”

~Oprah Winfrey 

Sitting in the starbucks working on trying to finish up my list for this week and just remembered that I have not yet posted my third blog post for this week, which is on my list.  So while this post will not be long because I must get back to working on this query letter, I thought I would say a few words.  More than anything this is for my best friend who always motivates me to get out of my own way and stop insisting that I can’t do something and change my way of thinking.  Today she is having one of those “I don’t really feel like doing anything” days and while I know I started to get on her about working on her list for this week, I stopped myself to tell her that it’s okay because sometimes we just have those days.  I had months of those days so who am I to get on her about anything.  Sometimes the mind just needs to rest and recharge its batteries and that’s okay. 

If we really think about it, recharging the mind does have a lot to do with completing our tasks and our goals because if our minds aren’t sharp then nothing we produce will be of much good.  So to my very best friend, and any other writer out there who is just having one of those days, don’t feel too bad because in actuality as long as your mind is still spinning those ideas around in your head then you haven’t really stopped working.  Until next time…let your mind recharge, and begin again tomorrow!
