Jingle all to Rest

I love Christmas time. For me, it is more than just presents and snow (sometimes), It is about the birth of salvation to the world and a time to rest. Yes, REST.

In the last few years though, rest has not been high on my agenda. This time last year, I was in the middle of writing my second novel and actually finished it on the 31st of December.

This year, I have put down my pen and I am teaching myself to rest. I tried to do NaNoWriMo and one week in, personal circumstances meant I was distracted. I beat myself up almost to the point of depression, I was tired, in pain and so discouraged but eventually, I pulled through.

Now, my commitment to myself is to finish this year with family, friends, food and rest. I want to read all the books I have so lovingly bought; I want to watch silly movies and most importantly, I want to take time to pray for my new season.

I think it is so important as Authors to take time away from the craft to reflect, re-centre, re-focus and rest.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and hope like me, you also take some time to rest.
