It has been said that the greater a person’s reach, the more important it is for them to take time to rejuvenate themselves.
“You cannot give from an empty cup,” is also a motivational thought that circulates social media on a somewhat frequent basis.
Those in customer service, leadership, service or faith type roles, law enforcement, the medical field, newsrooms, public relations, all need to keep an eye on their “me” time.
It is easy to take one more phone call, answer another question, do another project, not that any of that is a bad thing.
And what you do with your time should be something that truly relaxes you, your happy place.
I know folks who go fishing, who knit, go to the beach, paint, visit local parks and nab the free opportunities (such as town festivals) to chill for a while.
Sometime soon, I am going to finish painting my room. Once I finally do, the smooth feel of the brush, coupled with the fresh paint smell and the beauty of the new color will fulfill me greatly. Then I will be inspired to go through old things that I need to regift or donate. Not sure why, but that is the catalyst for me. So this project is in itself, relaxing.
Music. Paint. Admire my work.
What is that happy place for you?
It is Friday, and some have to work the weekend, but maybe you can carve out some time, a little here, a little there.
You will be glad you did.
Blessings all. The rooster is quiet this morning.
