He enjoys true leisure who has time to improve his soul's estate.
Henry David Thoreau
Five things that will help to leave you feeling refreshed and renewed for another week
1.turn on something relaxing, such as a nature CD where they’ve mixed in sounds of animals, ocean waves, and gentle rain or a water fall
2. Either write down or type out everything you want to get out about that situation that has happened, as well as why you feel so upset
3. visualize somewhere you’d love to be. Imagine walking down a path in the woods, and stopping to smell the pine cones. Feel and smell the fresh air, and see birds in the distance.
4. Count your blessings. Actually write out a full list of everything you are grateful for.
5. walk outside in the dark and look up at the night sky. See how many stars you can count. Or just gaze around, and see if you can find some constellations.
Sundays are always my time of rest, relaxation, renewal and refreshment. Even though I'm retired I still need one day set aside to do what makes me start a new week with a positive attitude and plenty of energy to do what comes my way.
I always make time to attend church because it is there that I get set right with my Lord. There is always a lot of campers at the church I attend here near the campground. It could be they will be appreciating a place to dry out this weekend. Not everyone does luxury camping like I do. I have a nice comfy dry camping trailer and many others have tents.
We have had loads of rain making it seem much like a rain forest here on my hill where I camp. It is on the steamy side too, not chilly at all.
I hope your Sunday is filled with plenty of that good R & R and that you'll be refreshed and ready for the new week ahead.
As always you all are in my thoughts and prayers.
Remember, that you can only do what you can do, and stressing out over the impossible wastes the precious energy you need for the rest of your life.
So, take five, and feel glad to be alive!
