Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 292 – Rest

img_00411

“It’s better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.”

Emiliano Zapata

Thank you, Spidey, for showcasing one of my favourite quotes, ever.

I think that truly defines how I live my life, to be honest.

Though, there are times I may be on my feet a bit too much.

Knees aren’t a bad place to be, once in a while. (Especially if, like mine, they arae beginning to hurt again…)

Life has thrown so much craziness my way, the last few weeks, on top of the Pandemic pandemonium.

Work on the house, going back to school full time, worry about my parents who are in Birmingham where there is increased lockdown…

It’s all stuff that is out of my hands.

I’ve just got to deal with it.

And I have been.

But, my body has been hinting that it’s time to rest on my knees for a while.

Just a little rest, it’s not a bad thing. A few days of not rushing around like a loon won’t mean I am missing out.

Work won’t be going anywhere, but at last, the house is more or less done. Before the joy of valuations starts, I’m putting me first.

If I want a bath every night, a soak for an hour, I’m going to do that. I need to go rid my head of the grey that has taken over. I want to read without falling asleep from exhaustion. I want to get back to writing again… my WIP is waiting for me.

And I will do it.

So… tell me, how do you rest?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps.  And enjoy your week!

    I embraced the gray, and I love it. One less thing to do! Rest, Ritu.

    I have to get enough sleep each night–no less than 7 or I just can’t deal. I’m not much for pampering; however I will soon get my hair cut for the first time in 2020–I’m a little excited about that kind of self-care!

    Hello Sis! Nice to read/ meet you! Sounds like a novel about a very busy woman. 😉 Yes, whenever its possible take a bath, and use good herbs, curing your body. I have heard about the new lookdowns in the UK. But dont worry, here its the same. Seems the virus is loving Europeans more than others, and will not leave. However: Take care, stay save with yours, and dont forget enjoying the life. Best wishes, Michael

    “rest” is an interesting word, because it no longer means lying in a bed…now it means doing something that brings serenity and calm…a book, a new recipe, watching the three hour Director’s Cut of “The Shining” sequel “Doctor Sleep”…a masterful film from a great horror Writer, Stephen King…yes, it was “restful” as I finished it invigorated!

    For me doing what I love is rest. I love being in the woods but its hunting season so that isn’t very practical right now. Walking g the neighborhood isn’t the same as being surrounded by ancient trees and their wisdom.

    Sorry to hear there is a lockdown where your parents are, it is scary. I hope your knees are feeling better today and you are a little refreshed for the new week.

    As a working woman the only luxury I get on a holiday is to wake up one hour late tha the usual working days . After attending family duties, relaxing with good book does wonders.

    These days, I don’t get to choose when to rest. If I sit still for longer than a few minutes, I’m snoozing!

    A comfy chair and a good book, or sewing or knitting. They’re all good for slowing the mind and the body down.

    It used to be a bubble bath (before hot flushes!) Now I’d say a bit of yoga helps. Or a walk in nature. Nothing like switching off from social media for a while. Take care my lovely. x
