Every week. a group of bloggers gather together sharing their posts from the week. Lots of inspiration for this weeks Welcome Home Sunday Week 73.
Yesterday, I worked out in the yard pulling weeds from our neglected garden beds.
When I came inside, my son looked at me and said, "Whoa, Mom! You're really sunburned!"
I found that odd since I had been working in the shade for just over an hour.
So I went to mirror to check it out and I was red as a beet complete with a soaked shirt.
But I knew the culprit.
I was overheated. When I workout, or do any physical labor, the first place I sweat is my face.
So I took his cue to pause for a moment and rest.
Obviously I needed a cool down.
And I realized that I was working myself way too hard. So when I went back out, I moved slower. But I found something in the process.
Prior to that break, I was frazzled and hurried just to get the job done. But afterward, I found myself singing along with the music and enjoying myself.
So, I hope this encourages you the next time you're frazzled to stop, take a break, and move at a slower pace.
You just might find yourself smiling, too!
