Usually, when the distractions of daily life deplete our energy, the first thing we eliminate is the thing we need the most: quiet, reflective time. Time to dream, time to think, time to contemplate what's working and what's not, so that we can better make changes for the better."
- Sarah Ban Breathnach, Simple Abundance
One thing I do to keep me sane and organized is making lists. To-do lists, like lists, must make lists and the lists goes on. This weekend I have had the opportunity to rest. I focused on getting all of my lists completed to enjoy a moment of rest.
I think rest is so underrated. We feel like we have to be going and going to fill some shoes, feel productive, successful and important. But we are called to rest. To enjoy the moments around us and the simple blessings.
Take some time for a facial mask, hot tea a little pedicure and a good book. Wrap yourself up in a cozy blanket and stay in for the night. Rest. Try it. It might make a difference.
