The longer I live, the more I am learning that life has a certain rhythm to it. My life has never been one of routine. Instead, it’s been greatly out of balance and way too busy most of the time. I used to wear that busyness as a badge of honor. But as I grow older, I am realizing that I’ve developed some awful habits. I can’t sit still, I can’t slow down, and when I try, I feel guilty about it. But, the problem is, all motion and no rest eventually produces activity without accomplishment. When we are depleted, we lose our way. We must develop a rhythm and a balance to our lives. Even the greatest athletes have an off season. So, develop one yourself. I like what Rick Warren says: divert daily, withdraw weekly, abandon annually.
