Time Out (gone fishing)
June 26, 2015
Every so often I just need to take a break from my every day routine and take some time out. Occasionally I will go for an extended drive, long walk, or – like I did yesterday – go fishing.
When you love what you do, you sometimes forget to take a break. At least that is what I find to be the case in my life. I get so wrapped up in the every-day that I burn myself out – spiritually, physically, emotionally, etc – without ever realizing it.
So this last week I fired up my old fishing boat and went for an all day fishing trip. Not only did I soak up massive amounts of sunshine, but also regenerated a ton of fresh energy. Something I had been needing for a while 🙂
When I was a young little lad, my wise dad – may he RIP – told me: “Son, God worked for 6 days and rested on day 7. If he felt the need to take one day off a week, how much more should we?”
Well said dad. Well said!
