Girls weekend getaway. When was the last time I went away with just the girls? Let’s just say it’s been a long time.
What do you do at a girls weekend getaway? I know some of us will sleep. Some of us will read. I am not sure what I will do but I will enjoy my time to just relax and not have to care for anyone but myself. That sounds so relaxing, since I just came back from a trip to where I took care of my mom and when I am not helping her I am taking care of my dog, my house, my yard, my car, my husband, my business, my kitchen, my blog, my son and so much more.
I guess I will do some reading and sleeping. But mostly I want to clear my mind and let it rest. To unclutter from all of the needs and wants of the world and focus on being at peace with my creator. It will be a tricky task because I seldom slow down. I am a major go getter type A person. I stay super occupied and fill my days with purposeful things, but I need to unplug. I don’t need to unplug from electronics but from the shooting arrows of my own mind. I need to quite my mind and let it rest. I need to put my mind on bed rest.
Don’t over plan
Just rest. I need to let my thoughts focus on the beauty of nature. The simplicity of life.
I will plan to re-focus when my mind tries to worry.
I will meditate on my favorite verses.
I will notice the simple things around me like nature and goodness.
I will lie in sleep with prayers and peace on my lips.
If you had a weekend getaway how would you spend your time?
