Leaving the hustle and bustle of our lives can sometimes be such a hard task. We are so caught up with our overloaded agendas.
So busy taking care of everything and everyone that we sometimes do not get alone time. Mark 6:32, reminds us that we must find time to spend with just ourselves.
Leaving Behind And Self-Investing
“The best gift you can give to yourself is to invest in yourself.” ―
The Scriptures also today us that “they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place.” We do not necessarily have to do as Jesus and his disciples did.
However, their action is a relevant reminder to us about investing time in and by ourselves.
There comes a time when we all must make it a priority to put away everything. If nothing else, this COVID-19 pandemic helped many of us to learn this much-needed lesson.
Leaving and disconnecting from the things and the expectations of the world can be such a challenge. Finding the time to just ‘do me’ is considered by far too many as selfish-indulgence, especially women.
Jesus told his disciples to “take themselves away and go in a desert place and rest awhile.” Are we not disciples, modern-day ones, in our own ways?
When Was Your Last Time?
When was the last time you did that?
Believe me, the job or company will not fall into bankruptcy. The children will not die or your friends will not make a royal mess of their life if you disconnect for a bit.
I encourage you to roster time for you into your agenda. Go away and rest, no company is required. Go where you can hear your own thoughts, where your communication with God is undisturbed. Where you can feed your soul and just unwind in perfect peace.
Leaving behind the dead-ends and dying moments will pay off in big dividends. Go, renew and rejuvenate yourself. Your stress levels will subside.
You will slowly become a better version of yourself. Start investing in yourself. That is how you preserve your sanity.
“Invest time and energy in your well being. Create an atmosphere of emotional safety for yourself.” ―
