Life is like sucking honey from a thorn.  Robert Duvall.

For me, it’s like getting a hit on the Funny Bone, and we all know there is nothing funny about that. But it is a reminder that the pain is real; as real as we need air to survive, water is life’s flow, and shelter before the storm is an absolute necessity.

Some of us are a work in progress, for others it’s debatable, but for most, life changes on a dime; that’s exactly why it is absolutely necessary to take a break, regroup, and renew at every opportunity for all the different reasons you may incur on your life journey; you know, things that could be detrimental to a sound mind, and body if not attended to.

But, then you have those that say, I’ll rest or sleep when I die. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how you are going to do anything if you’re dead? That type of thinking already has me exhausted. Although, sometimes in the worst of times we have to stop regardless of our obligations, even if it’s only for a few minutes in order to carry on.

The thing is whatever task we take on, chosen or not, it will take stamina and strength, combined with courage, a healthy mind, and a strong body that needs to be maintained and cared for. In other words, you need to be mentally and physically fit.

If you decide to take a little time for yourself, don’t waste time debating yourself about taking the time. What’s more tiring than defeating yourself with negative solutions when you’re supposed to be resting. Mental Health is so important but it doesn’t work well when we are tired and out of touch.

It’s ironic, but most people are quick to take any undeserved self-serving break for things that are of no account and may burn down the building going out the door, but that’s another story. For me, it’s a no-win situation; some of us may spend the rest of our lives wishing we had. That’s Life we take our chances, the thing is, I’d rather do mine in top-notch shape.

Give yourself a break from The Cloud.

Since so many of us are quarantined at home, we use the computer more than ever. Shut it down; read a book, watch TV, take a walk, reconnect with yourself, and stay away from the refrigerator; sing that song From the Window to the Wall.   🙂

If you can do without your phone, e-mail, FB, text messages, online shopping sprees, do without it, hide from the Cyber World for an entire day, if not, an hour is better than nothing at all. In other words, if it is not a catastrophe life or death situation, Do Nothing, but be warned, no matter what you decide, everything involves change, so Be Ready.

When we remove ourselves from an overload of information and in too many cases dis-information, it allows us to take Mental Breaks. The good news is those mental breaks coupled with a little peace are just what’s needed to refresh our learned capabilities coupled with our God-giving gifts;15 minutes or less is sufficient for most who take catnaps to refresh their minds.

Awesome Life Tips tells us, Sometimes you need a mental break and that’s okay. Whether it’s from the people in your life, or your daily routine, or whatever path you’re taking towards a goal, Breaks, and detours can be just as beneficial as the work needed to get you there; just listen to your body and act accordingly.

Give yourself a Physical Break, especially when hurting, hungry, or tired, it’s also okay to miss a day or two from work, the last thing we want is to exhaust ourselves, or infect others with colds, etc… Sometimes we have to take some personal time to clear our minds and bodies of whatever ails us.

Don’t get me wrong, I understand life sometimes won’t allow time off for various reasons, but if you don’t take the time your body, mind, and your feet will.

Learn to take a break instead of quitting. You have permission to rest, and it would help if you lighten the load of taking on the responsibility of trying to fix everything and everyone whenever possible. You do not have to try and make everyone happy, plus you’ll be better at it if you replenish your own worth first, not fall into exhaustion.

Sometimes, the only thing that should be done is to be still, and learn to appreciate the quiet and the beauty of being Surrounded by Nothingness; especially from all our emotions. Emotions have a reputation for running rampant; often filling our hearts with darkness or pumping so much adrenaline into our system we are running amuck with joy.

Oftentimes if we Calm Down, and Slow Down, it gives us the time we need to stand back for a closer look at what and who we are trusting with our happiness, our identity, and our self-worth. Sometimes we are too consumed with too many things, causing us to miss what’s really going on in our own lives.

When we want to get the right perspective we must see our situations from all angles, so we must take the time to access those around us; it’s good to know where we stand with them. It’s easy, just stop and take a peek, there is more to life than just rushing through it, and while you’re at it, don’t get too busy to NOT Notice Yourself, it may be just what the doctor ordered for you to catch up with you. 

I just wish we all would open our eyes to realize that being in too much of a hurry and too this or that only leads to stress, but, if we paid more attention to ourselves instead of others, we may find we are a little too much in too many ways. I suggest you take a break from your worldly self set for all to see, and let your inner self free, from there you can build your strength and shift you’re pretend selves from regrets to dreams, which alone can help calm your nerves.

It’s Something to Think About!

Jesus is Lord!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic
    to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking
    forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    I think that what you typed was very logical. But, think on this, what if you composed a catchier title?
    I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid, but suppose you added a headline to maybe grab a person’s attention? I mean DO YOU, OR?
    | Norvie L. Cherry is a little plain. You could glance at
    Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article titles to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your website a little bit
    more interesting.

    any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
