One thing that I have always tended to fail at, is taking time for myself: to back away from everything and find time to to simply take a break. I know people who are much better at planning and taking this time. I have always struggled with allowing myself what seems to be a frivolity.
In reality, it is essential. We need to give ourselves that chance to recharge in a sense, to take the opportunity for silence and peace to enter in. Sometimes these breaks might be simply moments in time where we allow ourselves to notice – notice the beauty in the small things around us. When we notice it, we can appreciate it, and then we can allow that sense of beauty to fill our hearts. I think that when we fill our hearts with beauty, we can share that better with others, maybe simply in kindness.
