Sometimes it’s important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it’s essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow.
– Douglas Pagels, These Are the Gifts I’d Like to Give to You –
Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t written a blog post for just over a week now, and that’s because I decided to take a little rest and a little time out from my blog.
I’m not entirely sure why I did this, but for some reason over the last week or so, I haven’t felt inspired to write. Not that I’ve had writers block or anything, but I just haven’t felt like putting fingers to keyboard. And also, not for lack of content or ideas for my posts either.
I almost definitely could have written a tonne of posts about all kinds of things.
However, this post’s message is about the importance of rest. The importance of taking time out, even from the things that you love the most. Because when you come back to them, you’re recharged and ready to go.
I think it’s so easy to fill our lives with habits and rituals, feeling the need to do the same thing every day, because that’s what we’ve always done before.
I started my blog back in the middle of March and I am very proud to say that through a dedicated writing practicing of blogging pretty much every day I have 107 posts under my happy little belt. However, there is also a lot to be said for writing and sharing something when you are inspired.
It’s very important for me to only share a post when I know it will be inspirational, uplifting, positive and that it will help people in some way shape or form. And this is why I have decided to have a little rest. To take some time out from my blog. Have a little holiday from it so to speak.
Hopefully, it will mean that I’ll come back to my blog, renewed, refreshed, with new ideas and thoughts to share with you, my beautiful readers.
So, my thought for you today is this, what do you need to take time out from in your life? Maybe you’ve been overdoing it in a particular area and it’s time to have a little rest. Maybe it’s something that you love, and you’ve had a little too much, and you need to take a step back, so that when you return to it, you appreciate it even more than you did before. Either way, it’s fine to take time out and take a rest from time to time.
Sending you lots of love, hugs and light,

A helpful insight Kat. Have been laid up in bed with the flu for the past 2 days, the forced R & R was not something id planned on, had so many things i’d hoped to get done but turns out my body desperately needed the break. So I’m making the best of a bad situation to try & build new & better rest habits so that I have sufficient energy in my waking hours to be most productive & useful to the people around me. Blessings!
It’s funny how the Universe creates situations in which we are forced to take time out and relax. Sometimes we just need to listen to our bodies when they are telling us that we need to give it a rest. Hope you are feeling better now. Lots of love x x x
