Learn to Take Time

>>  Sunday, May 18, 2014

I read this in a book at Our Chalet. It was written by the ladies of the Juliette Low session of 1959.

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 struck a chord with me as soon as I read it.  It strikes an even deeper chord with me now.  I came back from a week away, straight into post holiday catchup, post Cog DofE Silver recovery, GCSE in house stress and Guiding stuff I was leaving until after my break away plus going to work (that is always an add on and yet it is the major player!)  I am struggling to take time for anything.

I sincerely wish I was still sat here.  I was 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 but then I got back on the normal life treadmill. 

I guess it just takes a while to ease back into the pace.

I hope normal service will be resumed shortly, whatever normal is.
