31 Days: “rest”

Day 31 of 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes!

I can’t believe it’s the last one! Today’s word “rest” – five minutes on the timer… and go!

Rest definitely isn’t the vibe I get from the pushy realtor and the loud interior designer on the TV in the dealership waiting room. They both are clamoring for the couple to go with them and to see what they can offer for lower cost. Push push push. Shout and claim and be loud.

This is life for most of us in the country. Push our stuff out there for people to read. Shout and social media and send out to the email lists.

We need to build into our lives the rhythm of rest. There is a cycle we miss. Often what we want is rest – all day – every day. But that isn’t healthy either. Work isn’t cursed with sin – our world is. We NEED work. We need to be actively pursuing something.

But we desperately need to be reminded we have limits. No amount of coffee, energy drinks or even exercise can make that go away. We must rest – or our bodies will force us.

How do you build margin into your life?
