There is a Spanish proverb that speaks of how good it is to “do nothing and rest afterward.”
It may seem odd to begin a week with a blog about leisure. But, Monday morning is a wonderful time to assess how good and leisure-filled your weekend was.
Or, did you spend your weekend working...whether it was your work job, parent job, child job, church job, chore job...get it?
The ebb and flow of life demands that we take some time for ourselves to slow down and recoup; to recreate ourselves.
If you aren’t taking the time to renew yourself I can promise that stress, dis-ease, and confusion will, in some way, take the time.
Look ahead at this week: Can you find a chunk of time to devote to yourself? Can you find a few minutes each day to slow down a bit and recharge?
