Encouragement comes from so many places. My sister-in-law, Amber Browning, started a Facebook page, where she shares health tips. Everything from exercise to healthy recipes to supplements are included. But mostly, she shares encouragement! Amber is a fierce friend, awesome homeschooling momma, and a loving wife, who loves Jesus even more than all of these. Today, she shared about the importance of rest. She says,
“So often people start off strong, then life happens, there is a bump in the road, they get discouraged, and they end up quitting. It’s a cycle I’ve seen over and over again (I can also speak from personal experience on this one). What if I told you, “It’s okay to rest, to slow down, to take a break every once in awhile?” I’m sure you’ve heard the sayings, “life is a marathon” or “slow and steady wins the race.” By all means, sprint when you can, but know there is time to rest and refresh too. Pacing yourself is key! If you can find balance and consistency day to day with bits of sprinting and rest in whatever goals you’re trying to achieve, you’re going to do well. You WILL get there! Don’t give up when you feel like quitting. Take a breather, regroup, remember
your WHY, and focus on doing better tomorrow than you did today. You’ve got this!!!” #consistencyiskey #encouragingwords #youcandoit #thehealthyvibrantlife #nrf2activated

I’m at the point in my life that rest is as important as breathing : ) Quite honestly, at our ages, my husband and I cannot afford not to rest. We can’t take care of each other or others if we are too spent. Thank you for a timely post. Please Keep Writing!
Thank you for reading and thank you for the encouragement!
