The Need For Rest, Renewal

Most faith traditions call for some form of rest during the week. In my tradition it comes on Sunday. No matter what everyone needs a day or more of rest. Keeping the sabbath is important in order to keep balance in ones life. We live in a hyper-busy world where people are so over scheduled in their work and personal lives.

Everyone is afraid of missing something so they want to do everything. Saying no is hard but necessary. You can only do so many things in a week, month, year. Maybe our priorities need adjusting so our spirits can be recreated for making our lives better and those of others we love.

This is easier said than done. I have a problem with resting and relaxing. Realizing I cannot conquer the world is important to know. No one can conquer the world either.

Without rest and renewal we will find our lives to be very tough.

Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best. St. Jerome

Something About A Critique

Everyone is critiqued about something in life. From a speech to art to a research paper. Your work is judged sometimes fairly, sometimes it’s picked apart and you have to start from scratch to make it better. It makes you feel good when you are on the right path and all you need is minor adjustments and perhaps adding another point or two. I think after fixing something if time allows let it sit for awhile and come back to see if the improvements are going to work. I have to remember there are people out there who know more about some things than I do and their advice is meant to make me and my work better. It’s hard not to take it personally but don’t take it personally.

Daily Prompt: Messy

My friends, life is messy. Every facet of existence is going to challenge us as we go through some mud. Relationships are not for the feint of heart. Our friendships will test us and even come and go. The muck and the mud is where we find ourselves most often dealing with emotions that span the spectrum. We have things in our lives we aren’t proud of and very ashamed to admit. Good people go through bad things and that is a whole other discussion. Whatever you are going through, just keep going. You will get dirty and messy and it will hurt. Making something good means making a mess.

Some other folks were making changes to their blog and I did to today. I am using the Twenty-Sixteen theme and I am honoring the thirteenth Doctor from Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker by the header image which comes from the BBC. You should be able to read the posts better and the images will be bigger too. Thank you for continuing to visit and read what I am posting.

Keep on blogging folks!

Daily Prompt: Imagination

Everyone needs an imagination to get through life. Without the power to dream and to contemplate the impossible life does not move forward. Our imagination can fuel the possibilities of today and tomorrow. Everyone needs and imagination in order for them to get through daily challenges where we need solutions. When we stop using our imagination we truly die inside. We are inspired and challenged when we imagine what can be done to make life better or to do something extraordinary. Don’t forget to use your imagination today for good, good people. As John Lennon once sang “Imagine All The People”

Daily Prompt: Present

Being present means being in the here and now. For many, me included, the past might be a more comforting place but the stark reality of what is currently happening keeps me at attention for what is going on moment by moment. Many people depend on us being present so that we may accomplish the work that needs to be done. Our lives can be impacted by the present situations we find ourselves in some of our own making some out of our control. No matter what we have to be present to our own lives.
