Reflective Rest

Rest is not something that the world gives us. It’s never been a gift. It’s never been something you do when you’ve finished everything else. If you want rest, you have to take it. You have to resist the lure of busyness, make time for rest, take it seriously, and protect it from a world that is intent on stealing it.

Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less

Respite.

We all need it.

A break.

From the noise…

We get so caught up in chasing.

When there is nothing to chase.

The world continues to spin when you are still.

The opportunities will remain.

And who knows,

Maybe what you were looking for comes to you.

Rest.

Listen to your heart beat.

Listen to your heart speak.

Learn to listen.

Learn to trust this life.

The only one you have been given.
