|my real gas gauge. permanently broken. we constantly have to guess how full our tank is. maybe we should take the same cues in life.|
This next week, our "-ings" will transfer to some more restful and fun activities, for sanity's sake...
Playing, sleeping, eating, reading, being quiet, hiking, making fires, grilling hot dogs, swimming, resting, laughing, sharing, exploring, etc.
After a few days of being in the outdoors (help me, Jesus...I am more of the "stay in the bungalow at the campground type" than the "tent type"...we are sleeping in tents next week)...we are planning to take another couple days to have a stay-cation at our house. We'll eat out and do tourist-y things around town that we haven't done before: Bug World (a request from the boys), a tuk-tuk ride around downtown's must-see spots, the aquarium, etc.
Basically, we will be filling our tanks instead of emptying them. Humans were not made to be machines. We cannot run forever like the Energizer bunny...although we'd like to be able to, sometimes!
If the concept of filling your tank to prevent "burnout" from Life is something that interests you...take a virtual trip over to my friend, Joy's, blog here. She linked up to a great teaching on the subject. Also, read some of her other posts. You will be super-blessed by her vulnerable and honest writing style!
How do you fill your tank? What are you doing now that empties it more than your life can handle? Feel free to share in the comments below. Your answer could shed light into someone else's life as well as your own.
