Here we are with summer well underway! I’ve been enjoying slower days, longer evenings with the sun still out, and a recent full moon accompanied by Mars.
Since starting my Spanish to English translation business, I’ve been pretty good about establishing a daily routine when working from home. However, I’m finding it much more challenging to give myself a break during summertime. With no one to tell me, “Time for vacay!”, I have to create it for myself and decide when and where to take off. Little by little I’m learning to let go, trusting that opportunities won’t pass me by when I step away from a computer, and to just enjoy the moment.
The fact that there’s so…much…going….on in the world around us certainly helps to get me distracted from a to-do list. A huge upset for Spain in the World Cup….AMLO wins Mexico….and, of course, other’s people’s dreamy vacation photos!
In case you also need a little distraction, here are three newsworthy and positive stories that I found today for your reading enjoyment.
