Recently came across this perspective of life that we’re in rhythms of sprints & recovery. I reckon that probably sits very well with me: pockets of intense, committed energy, followed by deep recovery as well. I also recognise that when I do this regularly enough, I can engage better with teams or people around me.
Came a long way: not feeling guilty about resting & being unapologetic for taking “me-time”. Sharpens my senses, yet allows my heart to recover from sometimes unintentional slashes. I am relational to a certain extent, yet being an introvert & highly retrospective, I need to have time to recuperate, make sense of & tag my experiences & regroup my heart. Without the me-time, I seem to be highly irritable, ultra-sensitive & tending to take a more negative perspective towards things.
So here I am, unapologetic, having my rest, over coffee & some local snacks, with the white noise of the cafe crowd around me, as I lay my heart & mind to rest, laying in the secure arms of Abba, listening to His heartbeat.
That my heart may eventually sync to His restful beat.
