Ok so I wrote this almost a year ago and it’s been sitting in my blog drafts since last year. As I’ve been taking some time to start writing more and quieting myself, I happened to find this as I was scheduling my blogs for the next few weeks to get back on track.
As I was reading this I felt the need to share it since I think it still applies to today even though it was written last August while hubby and I were in vacay.
So here goes…. enjoy 🙂
Hubby and I are away on vacay for a few days and it wasn’t until I got to our destination that I realized that I needed it a lot more than I thought. This is the first trip that hubby and I have taken alone since our son was born in 2011.
YESSSS… our WE time had been limited to Friday night dates, nap times and pure luck if Dallas went to bed early. As first time parents and absolutely in love love love with our baby boy, we tend to spend more time with him, and we enjoy it.
But as we spent time together on this trip we realized how much R&R we needed not only as man and woman but also husband and wife. Some nights we are so exhausted that on the Friday night date night, we are happy just to lay in bed with no interruption. There is no conversation, no cuddling, just pure REST and SLEEP. Now don’t get me wrong we need that too but we had been working so hard at providing a good life experience for our son that we neglected ourselves and each other.
Now you may be wondering how this applies to you…
Although you may know what you need, you may not actually know what you need until you are in it. Some things may not become clear to you until you take the time to take the first step, make the first move, launch out into the deep and just do it.
YES… just do it!
You will not always know where it will come from and it may come when you least expect it. I knew I needed a vacay and I knew that hubby and I needed to be more intentional with having WE time, but it wasn’t until actually being on vacation away from work, our son, our house and anything else that sometimes distracts us from taking time out to do what really matters, that we realized what we needed. It was awesome and we are looking forward to doing this more often.
- I challenge you to take some time to do what feeds your mind, your body, your soul, your marriage and any other area that needs recharging.
- Be intentional in doing what matters most.
- Be open to realizing that some things you will only come to know once you launch out in to the deep.
Be open to receive what you need not knowing where exactly it will come from…
Until next time…
