Brain Rest …

I am awake, I am alive, and this morning I am so incredibly grateful for the last 48.

You see, an intense schedule FILLED with one amazing opportunity after another had left me mentally exhausted. Age and wisdom has shown me these signs indicate I need a break … from thinking. So for the last 48 hours, that is exactly what I did.

I still danced with productivity, but of the non-mental kind. I did laundry, organized my Nish bling, caught up on shredding, all while watching videos and podcasts that I had wanted to get to.

I made time for my brain to rest.

I knew I would work today, knew today was a day of preparation to ensure an amazing week ahead, but I do it with a smile on my face, knowing my brain is once again ready simply because it is rested.

And you my friend, have you acquired the same wisdom? Do you rest when brain, body, spirit or emotions indicate you should? Or do you push on, letting ego convince you that its okay to ignore what your body tells you?

I pray you listen, because we get one body, one brain, one heart, one set of lungs, and they deserve to be cherished.

Kudos if you have been loving you right. And if not, today would be a great day to start.

I love you!
