Ovid counsels, “Take a rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.” His words carry a profound truth that resonates through the ages. In the hustle and bustle of life, we often forget the power of rest’s gifts. Rest serves as a sanctuary where we recharge our spirits, replenish our energy, let passion be your guiding light as you navigate the journey towards your dreams. Let it infuse every action, every decision, and every moment of your life with purpose and enthusiasm and reconnect with ourselves. In these moments, we find solace and clarity amidst the chaos, allowing us to realign our priorities and rediscover our sense of purpose. We gather strength, gain clarity and emerge even stronger, ready to pursue new horizons.
This restorative rest has a transformative effect, awakening us to new beauties and possibilities that may have eluded us in our passionate, sometimes frenzied pursuit of goals. John Lubbock said, “Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” These moments of stillness allow us to appreciate the subtle, beautiful wonders of existence and open our eyes to the miracles that surround us.
Embrace the magic of rest. Allow yourself the grace to recharge, refuel and realign your priorities. For in those moments of stillness, you will pause, refresh and reinvigorate yourself to nourish your dreams and aspirations. Anne Lamott reminds us, “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes… including you.” Take a moment to unplug, to breathe and simply be. Like the field lying fallow, you are preparing for a season of abundant harvest. Make it rich and lush beyond your wildest dreams. Martin Luther King, Jr. reminds us, “Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.”
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
