It's a busy world we live in.
A lot of times I feel like there isn't enough time in a day that allows for me to do all that I need to. Even when I arrange for intentional time off, that seems to be engulfed by the hustle and bustle of life.
It's the way our society works! Our minds have formed this idea that if we aren't doing something then it's not right. By this, a lot of things in our personal life suffer, even if we recognize it or not. In my short years I'm learning the importance of taking time and getting away from certain aspects that consume majority of my time.
Too much of one thing can be bad! It's hard to express how true this statement is. Especially when it involves something we are passionate and sold out to. This can be looked at from any aspect of your own life. School, relationships, career, ambitions, personal activities. We get so wrapped up that it almost gets to a point of not being able to stop and take a breath. And that's unhealthy!
I truly believe it is absolutely necessary to take some time off. It's liberating to get away, not stress, leave all the madness behind and simply refocus. That break allows for you to be free. Something we all need time to time in this crazy world.
Sadly, most do not know what time off is. Or we just feel that we can't allow ourselves a moment to regroup. We are a people who GO, GO, GO. Yet, we need to take the time and realize how beneficial "time off" can be. Drop all cares, forget you have certain responsibilities and allow yourself to enjoy the greatness of taking some time off. Even if it's only for a moment, that moment can realign you and set the trajectory for your day, week, month or year.
Enjoy the freedom of time off!!!
