“Some of us need to discover that we will not begin to live more fully until we have the courage to do and see and taste and experience much less than usual… There are times, then, when in order to keep ourselves in existence at all we simply have to sit back for a while and do nothing. And for a man who has let himself be drawn completely out of himself by his activity, nothing is more difficult than to sit still and rest, doing nothing at all. The very act of resting is the hardest and most courageous act he can perform.”
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen”. Winston Churchill
We all need to just chill out sometimes!!
Jesus said “Come apart and rest awhile” Mark 6:31
And I say “Come apart and rest awhile or come apart”!!
