Did You Plan for This?

Did You Plan for This?

There is never a shortage of things to do, is there? As son as we get a break from all our activity and responsibilities, something else comes to our attention that we feel needs to get done.

If we’re not deliberate about how we spend our time, our schedule can get out of hand. A whole day, week, month or year can go by in the blink of an eye.

It’s for this reason (and others) that I wrote the song Take a Breather. (You can listen to it here if you haven’t heard it lately.


Today is Sunday. On Sunday I usually make a plan for my week. I look at my appointments, and I make a list of all the things I’d like to accomplish.

What I realized today is that, when I’m planning out my week, I don’t normally make a plan for how I am going to recharge my soul each day.

I decided to change that this week.

I am a firm believer that the work being done through you, though it is important, is not nearly as important as the work that is being done within you.

The work that is being done within you is what sustains you and drives you to be your best. If we’re not careful to nurture our soul and spirit, our insides can be crushed under the weight of our external pressures. We will implode and can literally develop illness and disease as a result.

What do you think? Do you agree?

You may want to ask yourself, “What is my plan to give my soul and spirit what it needs this week to thrive?”

Maybe you already have a plan, or have been working a plan or a routine. Would this be a good time to reevaluate your plan to see if it’s still serving you in the best way? Maybe it’s time to change it up a bit.

Or, perhaps you’ve outgrown your routine and you’re ready for more – something deeper or more fulfilling…like a Beefy Frito Burrito from Taco Bell!

(That’s a joke, by the way. I do NOT endorse eating at Taco Bell!)

Here’s to having a great week of nourishing our souls!

If you’re interested, hit me back and let me know what you plan to do. I’ll let you know some things I’ll be doing.
