About a week ago, I asked for some responses about how you guys recharge, refresh and stay motivated when times are a little tough. Here are some of your responses. Maybe they will help you remember some of the things that help you recharge. Thank you for those that added their thoughts.
Be sure to add any other things, that help you get motivated or get rested when life is overwhelming, in the comment section.
- Hanging out with my family and friends. Being able to vent in a safe place and getting positive feedback from others helps encourage me to keep moving forward.
- Watch TV and just veg out.
- God’s word
- Doing something outside of school with family and or friends.
- Reading a book for fun.
- Playing with my girls
I hope you have a restful week.
So, I know it has been a while. I did NOT realize that it had been nearly a month. I am sorry for the three of you, waiting for the wisdom to drop from heaven like manna. Nourishing your soul like nothing else.
Alright, so my self importance is a bit overwhelming, even for me.
Seriously, though, life gets busy and goes through many seasons. I did not write because report cards were due, then because of Spring Break, then because I’m a little lazy. Well, maybe a lot, but I like to blame other stuff for my shortcomings, so it had to be Spring Break. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
I find that I go through seasons, often, that lend themselves to creativity, innovation and trying new things. There are other times where I am just surviving, or being a little cranky or just going through the motions, with life.
Thankfully, I have more on days than off. I hate “just surviving”, but I have learned that sometimes that is all there is room for. And sometimes, for a season, that has to be enough, otherwise the weight of life just pulls us down and other problems can creep in.
So, what do you do to stay moving forward?
What do you do to stay mindful, to stay productive, to rest, in the midst of craziness?
What do you to stay get out of the rut? I would love to hear from you.
