Prescribing for others!



 
By Lizzie Turner from the Ashton Corners Book Club
Mysteries, by Erika Chase



 
It’s not too late for New Year’s resolutions, is it? Because I want to get in on them but more importantly, I’d like to take a page out of my good friend Jordan Bingham's book or blog as it were. I'm sure y'all know that she's from the Book Collector Series by Victoria Abbott. So, I'd like “prescribe” some resolutions for my friends. Sorry for copying, Jordon but thanks for the idea! 

Actually, I’ve varied that a bit by asking others to do the prescribing.

For Molly Mathews, Bob Miller says:  I resolve to slow down and smell the roses, not that I don’t enjoy them right now. But I seem to get involved in so many projects that often there’s no time left for me.

For Sally-Jo Baker, Jacob Smith says: I resolve to find some good ways to de-stress and practice them every day.

For Stephanie Lowe, Andie Mason says: I resolve to let Andie babysit Wendy more often. I know she’s good with the baby and loves doing it.  So, I’ll make sure that happens.

For Mark Dreyfus, I say: I resolve to spend more time with Lizzie Turner. She is the love of my life, after all, and I do spend too many hours working. I have to learn to delegate and kick back more.

That worked out rather well. There seems to be a theme going here though. 

Do you find it could apply to you?  Slow down, take more time for yourself, stress-less, and enjoy life?  If so, what was your main New Year’s resolution?

  1. I usually don't make New Year's resolutions, knowing that I'll only keep them for a couple weeks. Happy New Year to Every one!

  3. You said, "Slow down, take more time for yourself, stress-less, and enjoy life?" I didn't make New Year's resolutions, but after reading that, I'm reconsidering. Thanks, Lizzie!

  4. I don't really do New Year's resolutions. Too many things change in a year. We should be thinking about changes every day, not just once a year. Stress-less is good for everyday!

  5. Nancy R - I like the slow down, less stress resolution too, but to make that happen, I must resolve to procrastinate less and get at tasks I tend to postpone.
