Weekend List

156

It’s the weekend!

The weekend is often reserved for uncompleted tasks. And. The task list can take an infinite amount of time to complete.  While some things can’t be ignored, everything does not need to be done in order to relax.

The things is . . .  it can be a challenge to let go of the guilt . . .  of leaving things “undone” for another day.  

But.

The “undone” can wait.

This has not been an easy lesson for me.  I like to have the tasks completed and checked off.  It’s been a process for me to learn what’s absolutely necessary and what can wait.  I’ve finally learned relaxation is necessary and needs to be at the top of the list at least once a week.

Relaxation is necessary . . .  for long-term health . . . for sustained life-energy . . . and peace. 

Ultimately, we will not be able to go the extra mile in the journey of life without time reserved for relaxation.

So.

Let go of your need to get everything done. Let go of the unnecessary tasks. Let go of the guilt.  Let go of the tension of the fast paced-week.

Let relaxation be at the top of your list.

Take a breath.  Exhale.  Relax.

Enjoy your weekend!

Grab a cup of coffee, tea, or something.  Find a sweet spot during the weekend to pause.~Kerrie

*I’ve spent a significant part of  life in an alternate “universe” of the slow-down.  I ran at a high-pace every single day of the week as, if, it had to be a mandatory element of living.  The stress of it all seemed normal to me. It took time for me to realize I had developed my sense of self from doing rather than being.  

The thing is . . . living without space for the slow-down opens the door . . .  to increased stress, exhaustion, and illness.  The slow-down is essential to our well-being and overall health.  After spending a significant amount of life with busyness and a packed schedule at the forefront, I’ve learned the weekend slow-down matters and has become a sacred gift in my life.  

It’s a continual conversation at TableThink’s table. 

Joshua and I often discuss how we’ve struggled in finding space to slow down in the demands of the pastoral life. 

We agree it’s a key element in our coaching and teaching.  Of course, we need to practice what we coach and teach in order to influence others to do the same.

As always, you are invited to take a seat at TableThink‘s virtual table and join the conversation.
