That’s the part we forget, isn’t it? We don’t have time, our schedules are too demanding, blah blah and so on, etc. 😉 Rest? Pshaw. What’s that?
Rest is that thing that keeps you from falling flat on your face at some point.
“Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.” ~ Maya Angelou
“All that is important comes in quietness and waiting.” ~ Patrick Lindsay
“Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci
“He that can take rest is greater than he that can take cities.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
“If you neglect to charge a battery, it dies. And if you run full speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race.” ~ Oprah Winfrey
Don’t lose your momentum. Stop, breathe, be.
Blessings to you all. Never give up!

All such wise and true words! We get so caught up in every day pressures we sometimes forget to just stop and breathe a while. A quiet and calm mind gives us a better perspective. Great post! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Thank you for reading! I’m so guilty of forgetting to stop that I figured having it down in writing would be helpful. 😉
I’m in the same boat! 🙂
