Time To Put Your Feet Up

Updated on July 14, 2013

All You Have To Do Is Relax

We all have our secret agenda we try to complete

Nothing gets done if we are not healthy enough to see it through

Your mind and body need rest

When was the last time you just let all the world and it's thoughts go

Go blank as a page that is empty

Not having one single line or idea

It seems crazy even for me

I like to try so many things

Today I am trying nothing out

Not reaching for a solution or any conclusion

Just putting all of life on the back burner for the time being

Enjoying clearing my head and practice breathing

In and out

So simple we all can do

When was the last time we blanked out

I for one thought all my thoughts may never come back

What if ?

Well here I am and my thoughts came back because I took that chance

I dared

To risk it all and end up no where

So my outcome was this

I walked away feeling refreshed and the best I have ever felt in years

Rebooted like a computer that had to shut down

Make yourself a promise

To find some time in every day

To just let go

Feel what it is to go numb

Drifting in a pea soup fog

It won't last forever

Even though your not in control

Just let go

Breathe in deep and exhale out

Let all the air out of your lungs

See how wonderfully they fill back up again

Now this is one of Gods greatest gifts

That we can recieve every day without asking

So if your like me and your mind goes a mile a minute

Take the time


Kick back

Disappear like a magician does instantly right before your eyes

Only to reappear somewhere else

Now that is Harry Houdini's best trick

With a world filled with so much promise

At the same time endless aggrivation and problems

We have to find a balance

Trying our best and asking our bodies and minds to work as efffecient as they can

Not just once a month or on special occasion

Each and every time

That is one hard task to follow

Not impossible

So find a quiet place

Away from the rat race

Yes walk away from the computer your life line

Your cell phone is next

The one that's glued to the palm of your hand

We all need a fresh start

Life will still be here when you get back

If I am wrong there was no need to worry

Because then we are somewhere well beyond our scope of knowledge

Having one heck of a time

Wondering why didn't I do this sooner

So glad I did it and now looking well into the future

A dream come true

For all the dreamers who dream just as I do

      Dream on ; voted up, useful, awesome. Your words express what so many LONG to do, and you encourage us to just do it! My escape is my morning walk, very first thing after my bath and getting dressed. Ann VosKamp wrote, "the greatest form of thinking is thanking' so I am able to say "thank you!" "Thank you GOD!" the whole time I am enjoying nature, clean air, the fragrance of flowers, the white clouds, blue sky, or, if early enough, the sunrise.

      You are so correct that getting away from it all is a great reboot. Starting one's day in solitude, asking for God's guidance throughout the day, moment by moment, makes a huge difference.

      Thank you for a wonderful and inspiring hub. Blessings, Sparklea :)
