In this busy world of go, go, go
we seem to have all forgotten the refreshing power of a nap.
I see pictures of darling littles all over my instagram feed in peaceful slumber
or sacked out in crazy positions,
but as adults we often just keep going until we're past the point of exhaustion.
What good is making efforts to workout more
and eat better if our poor bodies are exhausted?
So I say if you need a nap...
My word this year is grace...
and I think it fits right along with giving yourself permission
to take care of yourself.
Seriously, what a concept right?!?
In this fast paced world we push the limits of what our bodies can handle
and then wind up crashing in a hard way...flu...injuries...exhaustion.
I think a lot of us need to slow down and remember it is okay to rest.
The dishes in the sink can wait a little while,
I can fluff the load of clothes in the dryer again,
returning emails can wait.
I know I need to remember.
I saw a great little print on Pinterest a while back...
"Stop the glorification of busy"
Amen and Hallelujah
Until next time,
