Last month, my cousin asked me, “Girl, don’t you ever just relax?” I’ve thought about his statement so much over the past several weeks. The truth is, my life is GO, GO, GO. While I tend to enjoy the busy pace, it is important to take time to slow down. I began to think about when I “just relax” and it usually involves hiking (which can be go, go, go) or camping (which I haven’t done in way too long). I decided to make it a priority to slow down and be still.
I don’t know about you but for some strange reason I feel guilty when I try to relax. There is so much to do! What would happen if I didn’t get everything done? Most of the time, nothing would happen. It would be there tomorrow.
This is why I decided to create a special place to call my own — a place to be still and relax.
Where is your favorite place to “just relax?” Do any of you struggle with “relaxation guilt?”
