As much as I love to be productive and make the most of the
weekends, sometimes all you need is a selah
[pause/break] type afternoon. One where you just rest the body, rest the mind, rest the spirit. That’s what I had this afternoon and boy, I needed it. It has been busy, busy, busy.
And perhaps it has been self-imposed – which has meant that sometimes, I just need to self-impose some time to chill. To just break away from the constant doing and just do nothing. Learning to just leave some things for tomorrow has been a tough lesson to learn. And learning to just do things you love as well sans the guilt for all the things you are leaving for tomorrow is another lesson I’m still learning. Anyhow, though there are a few more ‘serious’ topics I’ve been meaning to write about, those can be left for ‘tomorrow’.
Tonight, I wanted to share a cafe I found by accident on another
day where my body decided enough was enough and it was time to
declare a R&R day… BUT, technology fails me at the moment. All the photos taken at this quaint cafe were captured on my old phone, the cable of which I have left at work. Hmm. Perhaps this will have to be left to tomorrow too haha.
This has been a pointless post from an Ames who needs to go and do
I think I sometimes allow the weather to dictate my mood too much. Knowing that today is going to be rainy and gloomy made it that much harder to get up this morning… well I got up, peeked outside, sat down to read, then decided to put my head back down on the oh-so-inviting pillow :P.
Or maybe it has just been a busy weekend, which it truly has been. Weekends now start at Weds 12pm for me, having finished with classes for the week by then and it has been chock-a-block with a new initiative, helping out with Universe’s Tour of Melbourne (60-70 ppl!?? PtL!), catching up with readings and clerkship apps, working all day Friday, teaching away half of Saturday, finishing a life-challenging/changing book, investing in my mentee and starting to edit an article for AJLL (to list just a few!). I don’t know why I felt compelled to write that all out… maybe it is to justify waking up with a little less energy than usual…
I’ve been loving uni but at the same time, I’m looking forward to the day when I won’t have to say ‘no’ to things (often good things too) due to study commitments and priorities… but then there will be work commitments, right? Haha, I guess it’s just a matter of balance which will be constantly adjusted to whatever circumstances you are in at the time.
And this post feels like it should have been on the other blog. It’s too pensive. And I should have hyperlinked a lot of the above references. Oh well.
Onto a new week!
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
