I am on a break… not for long, but long enough for me. Nine days… I know it takes 28 days to form a new habit, I hope mine works out in nine days — to learn to let joy in and learn to throw out the occasional trash that the soul loves to horde from time to time.
Every habit needs to be replaced with something new, if one needs or wishes to try something different. You can’t always go with the same-old workout regime that you had when you were in high school. One needs to get out of a toxic relationship if they really want to have a shot at finding love. Old clothes must be thrown out or else your closet will have no place for anything new. Plants are pruned from time to time so that they can grow and be healthy.
See, everything needs to break someplace, somewhere. Everything must end someplace, somewhere for new to grow.
I had to get away from work for sometime if I truly wanted to realise and reaffirm why I fell in love with it in the first place. And, hence, I am on a break. I haven’t done anything Earth-shattering yet — not scaling the Alps, haven’t volunteered for a rescue mission either… the only thing productive I have done so far is clean the kitchen. But, it feels good. It feels good to slow down and let the soul breathe in the beauty it is surrounded with all the time.
“My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest,” says the Book. I am on a time-out. And I can’t wait to do nothing but relax and just be the coming days.
Happy holidays to you all!
