Step away

by Starla J. King on February 2, 2011

Sometimes work needs to take a back seat.


I know — it’s almost sacreligious to say that in this largely work-focused American society (especially here in the Washington DC area).  We get gold stars for working late and sacrificing “me time,” and being in a crazy rush all the time is more likely to get a double-thumbs-up than if we push back our desk chair and say “I’m outta here — taking a break!” 

I find, though, that it’s usually on those days we most strongly feel we can’t possibly afford to take time for ourselves that we most NEED to do so. 

Like tonight when I need to write a brilliant blog post and it’s already getting late and I’m tired and I just … need… rest.

So that’s exactly what I’m going to do.  I’ll stop writing so you can stop reading and we can all step away from our computers and our work and step towards our families, our hobbies, and our internal quiet.  

Go now… rest.

Must be Wednesday..right on scheule 🙂

Ok so I totally needed that.
Close the books, flip the switch – enough.
Breathe, clear, dive in to self.
