Summer is a good time to do something for yourself. Invest in you and get a fresh perspective. Take a breath of fresh air which might mean taking a day off, going on a retreat, staying off social media for a week, committing to spend quality time with your family at dinner for a week, or going to the spa and meditating. We all need a break from the mundane, routine of life so we can get a new perspective and keep going.
Have you noticed, when you return from a vacation or time away from a project, you come back with a fresh surge of energy or even a new idea or way of approaching life? We all need these times away so we can keep moving forward.
It usually takes a sacrifice to take a day off, go on a retreat, or stay off social media, but it’s well worth the effort. You will return with a new zeal. Meditate on scriptures and see what God is speaking to you. In the stillness, you will hear His voice instead of the booming voices of others. You may find through the course of your busyness, you have gotten off track. It’s time to refuel, refocus and renew your mind. Invest in YOU this summer!
