Take time to think - it is the source of power
Take time to play - it is the secret of perpetual youth
Take time to read - it is the fountain of wisdom
Take time to pray - it is the greatest power on earth
Take time to love and be loved - it is God given privilege
Take time to be friendly - it is the road to happiness
Take time to laugh - it is the music of the soul
Take time to give - it is too short a day to be selfish
Take time to work - it is the price of success
It is a while since I read this in a book at Our Chalet. It was written by the ladies of the Juliette Low session of 1959.
I sat here, alone with a cup of tea just watching the sun go down over the mountains, not thinking too hard, just gently pondering life, the universe and everything. It all seemed so clear, so reasonable.
I was only sat there because I took the time to volunteer.
Sometimes it seems like a treadmill of effort, constantly draining time but should I choose to reclaim that time, would I use it more wisely? I doubt it, what time is better spent than investing it in the world's future. And that is exactly what volunteer youth worth is.
