Take a rest…

The sun sets on another day…

We wandered down to the pier and watched sunset pass. The hills took away the sun earlier but gave an exciting glow into the lake that made me smile.

Today I was walking up and down the driveway with the puppy. After a little while she stopped and that was that. It pretty much looked like a plop down on the ground with a panting puppy closing her eyes to rest in a matter of moments. I was not that hard on her it was just time to take a rest.

Sometimes life can be a little bit rough. We should take a lesson from Pepper and realize that occasionally we just need to take a rest. Not necessarily because we are exhausted, which I found out rapidly she wasn’t today, but more to focus on ourselves just for a moment. In doing so that rest may give us the pause necessary to accomplish something greater. That rest may be exactly what we need to make a better decision.

We need to pay attention to ourselves for a little while. Not for the purpose of becoming self-centered jerks but instead to realize when it’s time to take a rest. Look inside yourself and determine what is best for you and only you, then take a rest if you need it or keep going if you don’t.

So as the sun sets on another day don’t rest for the sake of resting but instead rest when you need it. Find the passion and prowess to move on when you need to or to rest when you don’t. In the end only you know what’s best for you, make that your goal every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy your rest…
