With the years I learned how valuable time is and how important it is to cherish your moment with people you love, ’cause time really doesn`t wait and when it`s gone it`s gone. Nowadays people have busy schedules but this shouldn`t be a reason not to find some time to get together. Being a single mom with a full time job could have also been a reason for me not to have spent much time with family and friends in the past. But there`s no better moment than enjoying time as it comes. So no matter how busy your life is, you should enjoy every moment that you can.
For me spending time together with family and friends is my treasure and I`m grateful that God has blessed me with such wonderful people in my life.
I`ve also spent time with people from which I thought the moments spent with them was valuable. At first I saw those moments as time wasted, but than I realized it`s not worth thinking and wondering things like ‘If I only knew…’. I should spend my valuable time with people who really want to be with me and people I love to be with.
Sometimes when you`re enjoying your moments together with your loved ones, you might have some unhappy moments, but in the end everybody will be happy again and filled with nice memories.
I recently learned another lesson. To listen to both my body and my mind. When they say “Stop we need a brake!”, I should slow down and give them both some rest. In the last months I rarely did that. After my surgery I even started working sooner than I should have. Not good but sometimes when we have so many obligations, we forget about ourselves.
Of course my body and I have always been together so we know each other already for a long time and it`s not the first time this happens, but I think I`ve continuously asked too much from my body. Not only my mind and body learned something new about me, but also all the lovely people around me that were angry with me, or my son who told me he won`t be talking me with me for one day if I don`t listen and get some rest. They learned that I`m very stubborn and l kept having clashes on this topic until they were exhausted.
Afterwards the situation made me smile `cause I should admit that sometimes I forget how much people do care for me.
I decided to take the brake my body needed. And where could be the best place to give my body some rest and relax? Where my roots are! I had a wonderful time and I`m back now in Europe but all I can think of is the time of relaxation over there. I learned my lesson and I realized that overworking and not resting is also a part an unhealthy life, but I got the best therapy ever! My roots opened my eyes and I`ll hold on to that for sure.
So, when your body needs a brake, give it to him! There are many ways to do that. You just have to find the balance.
