Work and Time


Earlier I read Ruth Ayers' post on Five Minute Friday!  I was inspired to write and post after reading hers!  I wrote in my journal app right on my phone for five minutes on the topic of time.  I've noticed lately how it seems to move so quickly...but we must not work our days away for rest is needed too!

Time to work
Busily moving about
Seeing the clock tick away 
Working on the work and look up
noticing...
Soon minutes turn 
into hours 
and then Day into night!?

STOP!

TIME to rest...
Rest for 
tired eyes,
aching muscles,
thinking brain,
racing heart...
Rest
Nourish your soul!
Rest
Wake up!  
spirit renewed and refreshed...
Balance...
Bring your all but
--keep the balance!

  1. Thanks for this reminder, Amy. Balance is key! It's so hard at this time of year as we transition from the rhythms of summer to the rhythm of school. Hope your transition goes smoothly!

    1. Thanks Catherine! It's supposed to be my one little word this year but haven't been doing so well with it lately!

  2. I love the idea of trying to balance writing, working, sharing, resting and thinking times....but 5 minutes is a hard timeline for me! If only there were more hours in the day?

    1. Anita,
      I know 5 minutes was hard. It took another 20 to re-read, revise and post. That said, a half an hour to get it done wasn't bad at all...

    2. I could use an extra 4-5 hours in the day!
