I’ve been having a few health issues that have resulted in me feeling low both physically and emotionally. This has but my work schedule out of whack and it lead me to feel guilty about not keeping up with my blogs. But the plus side of this is that I’m doing more things to restore life’s balance – eating healthy, taking my meds on time, walking, sleeping, reading and coloring a lot more.
Instead of feeling stress or guilt, I’ve started to feel grateful for this wake up call to take better care of myself.
Restore Life’s Balance
How easy it is to forget the important things in life! How very easy to lose oneself trying to push forward with work and goals. But what use are goals and targets if we are killing ourselves to achieve them.
“In the deep jungles of Africa, a traveler was making a long trek. Coolies had been engaged from a tribe to carry the loads. The first day they marched rapidly and went far. The traveler had high hopes of a speedy journey. But the second morning these jungle tribesmen refused to move. For some strange reason they just sat and rested. On inquiry as to the reason for this strange behavior, the traveler was informed that they had gone too fast the first day, and that they were now waiting for their souls to catch up with their bodies.
Then Mrs. Cowman concludes with this penetrating exhortation: “This whirling rushing life which so many of us live does for us what that first march did for those poor jungle tribesmen. The difference: they knew what they needed to restore life’s balance; too often we do not.”
Today, I’m reminding you to allow your soul to catch up with your body. Just relax. Just Be.
