Take A Break


“What do you do when you feel ‘spent’?”

I’m taking a break, warm weather and all.  It’s much needed and way overdue.  Normally, I’m pretty good about balancing work expectations and refresh-time (read about that here), but the past few weeks, the balanced tipped — understandable as this is the season of reflection and worship as the world celebrated much-needed HOPE, found in the resurrection of Jesus.  In my line of work, that means created great environments for people to come and exercise that celebration. 

For me, I finally unwind on day 2.5.  It is then that I sense it’s okay to stop thinking about work.  It is then that I realize that I am a human BEING, not a human DOING (old cliché but tweet-able!).  It is then that I truly slow down and see the beauty of God’s creation around me. 

No matter what season you’re in, you need breaks, you need warm weather, you need a pulling away.  You need refreshed like David was when he God  brought him into open spaces

Pull away.  Take a break.  Life will be waiting when you get back.
