Take A Balance Break©

Lent has begun!  It’s a season of introspection and action, forty days worth.  What can I “put down” in order to have the time and energy to “pick up” something new?  What action can I take that helps me to remember how and why I’m actually on a path, that tightrope walk?  I have a big list this year!

I’m busy, I’m well, I’m happy.  And when “that” happens I have a tendency to just plow through, enjoying the bounty.  Of course, that usually means I teeter on the rope or eventually fall and need to climb back up.  So this year I’m taking my own advice and am going to stop and Take A Balance Break©…several times a day.  I’ve got my small group and we’re doing a study on the Beatitudes.  (BTW, I usually get stuck on the blessed “meek”…).  I met some old friends for Ash Wednesday.  Each day I’ve reconnected with someone I haven’t seen in a while.  I’m getting up 15 minutes earlier to post a FB message and a song…a project that began as a friend’s request for the music that inspires me.

So in order to play catch-up, here are the first few days.  I hope you will take a few moments each day to do something kind for yourself.  Take a break from the day and…balance!

1/40     Take five minutes to BREATHE.

2/40     Make your day HAPPY.

3/40     Remember that GRACE falls down.  If you fall, get back up and try again!

4/40     While on your path, LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE.

We can get a lot of thinking done in forty days!
