So my wife has left with our son to visit with family for a little while and little Aly and I have stayed home, opting for a little quiet time.
I’ve mentioned before how it seems people are quick to dismiss the benefits of a little quiet time. Some people have even told me that if it is quiet too long, they’ll just fall asleep. That can sound a little silly to me, coming from grown men, but I guess if they don’t want to be awake, it isn’t really my place to tell them they should be, so I just shrug and move on.
Mornings like this are a good time for me to take a moment and reflect on what I’m really doing — where I’m making progress or where I may be slacking. Quiet times can be self-improvement times, especially to those of us who value spirituality or meditation.
But maybe we do have to stop and just rest sometimes…
