Recharging My Battery

It felt so good to be at home today.  I have been traveling non-stop for about six weeks.

Today was all about regrouping.  Getting caught up on reports, expenses, following up with people, unpacking, washing clothes, etc.

Even though it is the end of April, it is still cool outside.  This afternoon, I bundled up with my jacket and a cap.  As I step outside, I could smell the freshness of the air.  It had rained earlier today and I could see the moisture on the grass and rose bushes.

As I walked through the neighborhood, I could hear the doves cooing, the gold finches singing and flitting from one tree to the next.  Baby rabbits were hopping from one house to the next.  Dogs were barking and kids were playing outside.

Looking up into the sky, all I could see were the white, puffy formations of the clouds with the blue background.

After walking for about forty minutes, I felt recharged.  We forget that when we are busy and trying to accomplish a lot that our body, mind, emotions and spirit gets drained.  Before you get to that point, take some time for yourself.  That could be reading a book, taking a walk, having coffee with a friend or just being still.  I once read that "we cannot deliver the goods if our heart is heavier than the load."

Take some time and get your battery recharged!
