day 29

"Always leave enough room in your life to do something that makes you happy, satisfied, or even joyous." Paul Hawken

I really had to sit and think about what do I love but don't often get the time, no sorry take the time to do! Reading, I adore reading but these days I seldom take the time to read much at all. I always do on holiday, but I must make an effort to do more reading just for the sake of it. I read loads for work and scrapping mags and books do ok but I am going to ensure I fit in a book a month just for me. At least that's a start.
