What energizes you?  It may be different by the season of the year.  In summer it may be long walks in the cool evening.  In fall it may be raking leaves.  In spring it may be planting a garden and in winter it may be filling bird feeders and waiting to see who shows up to eat the seed.  It may be a glass of wine and blue stilton cheese or a cup of hot chocolate heaping with whipped crème.  Sometimes we don’t take time for ourselves.  It’s important to re-energize, life can be difficult on any given day.  Spoil yourself a bit.  Eat chocolate, drink wine, take a bubble bath, and be child-like for a few hours.
