People in my life would say that I’m a work-a-holic. When they see me out and about, I’m doing just that most times – working. But as a human being, I must take time to sit back, smell the roses, sip the coffee, play with the kids and RELAX. Yes, I said it Seemingly from a person who never rests. But, au contrare, mu frere! I do.
If I spent every waking hour of the day working and not getting the recharge and the rest I needed, I would be a ball of nerves, tired all the time and just plain unhealthy. There’s just no way I could let that happen dealing with multiple children and multiple responsibilities.
My advice for the day? Take some good quality time out with your family doing something recreational. No, it doesn’t have to go on for hours, it could be as little as 20 minutes worth of something, ANYTHING. Just do it!
Also, don’t forget to take some time for you. I hear it all the time, and so I repeat it, “If you can’t help yourself or do something for yourself, you definitely cannot do anything for anyone else.” Breathe, pray, meditate, recreate, and most of all APPRECIATE!
I sincerely hope you all enjoy this beautiful next couple of days, I know I’m looking forward to them.
