I’m away on retreat, working with a great group of people.
|Tweetup at the Swansons’ home:
Nancy Swanson, Andrew Swanson,
Paul Merrill, Deb Brown, Becky McCray,
Glenda Watson Hyatt, and Jon Swanson
We’re working on our own things, in our own classrooms. But we seem to come together at all the right moments to focus on something someone is struggling with. I’ve had a couple of moments of great clarity. Moments I wouldn’t have had in my regular routine.
In the Business and Professional Women, we used a Collect with the line, “Take time for all things.” I don’t think that means to try to “do it all.” I think it means, for all the things you do, take time for them. And take time away when you need to.
