There is much to be said for taking some time to rest and restore after significant life events. Sometimes we choose to take a break in order to care for ourselves properly. Other times we have downtime thrust upon us when we least expect it.
I think in both cases the outcome of a renewed spirit and body is something which we would do well to recognize as a gift, or at least try receive the process willingly.
Stress, exhaustion, illness without the followup of restorative downtime can take a huge toll. Unfortunately, we often don’t realize the toll as it happens over time slowly chipping away at health, vitality and joy.
So I’d like to take a moment today and celebrate the blessing of rest. I hope you can too.
You may be wondering why it’s been so long since I’ve written. Well, significant life events gave me some much needed restoration time. Some of it I chose. Some of it I did not choose.
I was married in April. I took a couple of weeks off for the wedding, a beautiful and peaceful honeymoon basking in nature with my new husband, and then the work of blending our homes into one.
I was in the office for a week after the move was completed.
And then . . . forced downtime. I’ve since been out three weeks with a case of Covid. Yes. Wedding, honeymoon, move, Covid. I guess we’re really doing things together! We got sick on the same day.
I suppose we needed more restorative rest. And we’ve certainly had it.
Now it’s rather wonderful finding myself missing my work and my clients and doing the things that help people rest and restore themselves. I can tell you now more than ever that I champion the value of rest!
I’m blooming again with energy and a desire to support your journey toward renewal. I will be back in the office next week.
I look forward to seeing you!
