Slow-Down Therapy...

This little image is from this Amazon link.  Slow-Down Therapy by Linus Mundy.  I was looking for a book in our home library and this little gem caught my attention.  By the inscription I wrote inside the cover, I purchased it for Mr. C July 2001.  I requested he do one of these every day until they became "natural" to him so that he could enjoy life and be happy.  Mr. C was newly retired...again!...and he just cannot seem to sit still.  One word describes Mr. C and that word is "DRIVEN".  He is happiest when he is going Mach Four with his hair on fire!!!
I am now reading this book.  And for the next few weeks I shall unplug myself and practice enjoying day at a time to fully be in the moments.
Number 11.  Allow yourself time to be lazy and unproductive.  Rest isn't a luxury; its a necessity.
I shall take some time to challenge myself to actually enjoy my days.
I won't be commenting on your blogs and I will be missing each and every one of you.  I consider you my friends and I truly care about you and what you are doing.  I do hope you will return to my blog when I am refreshed, re-charged, re-inspired and truly happy enjoying life.  This is not a sad time for me...quite the opposite.  I will have lots to share with all y'all as they say in the South.
Thank you my dears.  Creative Bliss...


  1. enjoy, is that the right word for your break and taking time to relax, I should not be surprised if you find it hard to do being such a active person, will catch up when you return refreshed.

  2. I have a few of these little books and they are gorgeous.I am going to dig mine and and reread them after your reminder.
    Take some time to rest and refresh Sherry.You'll love the slower pace.
    Due to illness and recovery time, I've had to build relax'n time into my life, and now I love it.
    looking forward to chatting with you when you return to blogging.
    Have a MARVELLOUS holiday.

  3. I do believe you are on to something. I think I'll be doing something different this month as well. Bless you!

  4. Taking time to be a strange concept for me. I was raised thinking we needed to be busy, doing something, even mealtimes were rushed. Lately I have been trying to take the time to enjoy and appreciate daily living, not all things need to be accomplished at high speed. Enjoy being unplugged, I hope all the roses smell sweet!

  5. I am going to have to check this little gem out...Rest well, my friend!

  6. My dear Sherry,
    your husbond sounds exatly like mine,-- rainy weather, with nothing to do outside is a terrible day for him, after he retired ,he can`t relax inside, doing "nothing".
    I hope your next weeks will be amazingly wonderful and happy. Enjoy having time to yourself and Mr. C- experience and relax, and come back and tell about it all !
    Hugs from Dorthe

  7. Enjoy your break!! Rest, rejuvenate, be happy!! We'll be here when you get back :)

  8. Hello Sherry, that sounds like a great book! I am wishing you the best rest and relaxation. I will enjoy seeing you when you return.

  9. Challenge yourself to be lazy - I love it!
    Enjoy your time Sherry, relax, unwind - of course we will visit you, whenever you come back... Enjoy!!

  10. I think this is a wonderful idea...actually, I think you are so poetic in your blog & comments, yuou should take time to write a book or poetry!!! Enjoy this time,

  11. Take care my friend, I think what you're doing is wonderful,

  12. Hmmm, maybe I'll see if I can get this book. Relaxing and being lazy - perfect for summertime!

  13. Enjoy your time. We often spread ourselves too thin. I am learning to step back and just enjoy the day as it unfolds rather than forcing things or creating a constant to-do list. Wishing you all the best, Tammy

  14. Enjoy your time away and unplugged. Sounds like a plan
