Today’s prompt is: Rest. Ready? GO!
As I head into this holiday weekend…this weekend designed specifically for rest, I look around the room and list my to-do’s. I count them up in my head until they begin to swim and shift and get all jumbled. I feel the frustration of working in a place (my home office) where I am constantly confronted by the never-ending list of motherhood. Will I ever get to rest?
And then the thought comes to my writer-mind….but rest is a verb, Cari….a word denoting action. What if rest looks like accepting the to-do list as is? What if rest looks like getting up at 5:30 every morning to exercise before the family wakes and the to-do’s crowd in? What if rest is climbing Mount Washmore and feeling the satisfaction of KNOWING my kids will have clean underwear all week? What if rest is playing in the floor with the dogs and the munchkins?
With each inhale of this action verb rest I feel my energy build, I feel my spirits raise. I feel energized and alive and….rested.
