Thankful Thursday – Vacations

MN 2013 043

Whether it’s a vacation or staycation, it’s medicine for the soul.

What better therapy is there than to unplug from all things electronic and just get back to nature.  To the simplest of pleasures.

There is much to be said for simplicity that is best summed up not with words, but in quiet reflection.  Uncomplicated living.  Even for one day if that’s all you can string together before duty and obligations need to be tended to.

Free from the distractions of television, Internet–yes, even social media, telephones, radio.  All electronic devices.   To completely unplug.

Just to absorb the solitude and beauty of pure silence.  Nature and its sounds in its purest form.

Or to do nothing but reading for pleasure.

I’ve experienced reading or writing with pen and paper in nature or in complete solitude to bring a whole new level of creativity and joy than with the distractions of electronics.  Even if they’re not on.

The threat of the phone ringing or someone turning on the TV or radio limits my thought process from being completely free.

Unplug.  Unwind.  Vacate the busy-ness of life.  Vacation.

Rejuvenate.  Re-energize.  Renew.

All is Grace.
