Make time, Give time, Take time out

Empty time is a powerful medicine that can make us more joyful and resilient,  but it’s strangely hard to swallow. We yearn for a powerful source of liberation that is right under our noses, and we’ll do almost anything to avoid it.
–Martha Beck, Making Time for Nothing

I saw this quote from Martha Beck today in her daily quote a day, and just wanted to share it.

It’s so true.

We tell ourselves we need more time, and that too much is going on.

Yet, when we get empty moments sometimes they scare us.  We turn around and fill them with doing.

This season, how could you embrace the empty time and realize you have much more freedom than you realize?

Enjoy your empty spaces today and especially this weekend!
