I have just had a really nice one week holiday with all my family in Melbourne. It was a full, fun time with much time spent around food tables, having snow ball fights, taking wine tours and op-shopping.
However, before I went on this holiday I had worked hard to complete some big projects and was feeling both satisfied and exhausted. But in the last month of craziness, something had dropped off in my weeks, and that was regular still time for renewal.
Time given for inner renewal is never a waste of time.
This might sound like an obvious statement for some people, but for those of us – me – who tend to like busy, activity and full schedules, this kind of time may not find its way into our lives as regularly as they should.
Time for inner renewal is quiet time, still time.
Time for inner renewal is time with no distractions from other people.
Time for inner renewal is a spiritual time, a reflective time, a heartful and mindful time where we come ‘just as we are’, to gain strength from having a fresh perspective and a renewed hope to our worth, what our strengths are, and what we bring to our family, friends and community.
Make time, your way, to be still and to learn once again who you are and what you bring to this world.
