#slowitdownSunday / rest is a gift

the daily Starr slow it down Sunday

Many times I think rest is something I should feel guilty about. My mind drifts to all the things I should be doing instead of choosing rest…

Instead, I want to change my perspective on rest. Rest is a gift.

Rest is a gift to be received not a reward to be earned. – Holly Gerth

It’s not something I need to earn.

Amen to the amen.

My body needs rest. My soul needs rest. My home needs rest. My family needs rest.

Tonight, we choose rest.

With so many of us choosing “words” to represent 2019, this one may feel a little counter-productive, but go with me. Many of us are choosing words that are so actionable, and “rest” might feel too…still? Will 2019 be an amazing year if our focus is on rest? I argue that it absolutely will be. What year have you actually focused on allowing your body and mind the time and space they need to revitalize themselves? To be still? – Emily Ley via her blog
