This year, I have determined to learn how to rest better. (There's a story behind this, but I'll share that later)
I've realised that for years - no, decades! - I have pushed myself past my limits, carried constant stress, and even in periods where I was "veging", "taking it easy" or being just plain lazy - I wasn't really resting well. I had never learned to really switch it all off and REST. This year is my year of learning to rest. I am actually getting better at it - and the result is a more relaxed, more productive, and definitely happier me.
I want to host a blog series. I've got a couple of hot bloggers lined up already (Adrian, from Life Before the Bucket, has agreed to share his Sabbath experience with us - I am over the moon!!) and I'm hoping a couple of my friends, including my brother, Josh, will contribute the unique perspectives I know they have.
And I'm throwing this wide open! Do YOU have a unique perspective on "Rest" that you'd like to share? Maybe you're a sleep therapist? You've discovered meditation?? Did you have an experience that taught you the value of rest, or how to rest well?? Doesn't worry me if you are a theologian, or an atheist... I think we all have something to contribute!
If you'd like to jump in... shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can't wait to hear from you!!
PS. This series is focusing on rest - but if there's something else you're burning to share, try me! The blog is open!
