This past weekend I went to Ellis Lake for a retreat with my church. We rented a private area with multiple cabins and awesome facilities. During the past three days, I learned about the art of resting and enjoying the moment. I learned that resting does not necessarily mean physical rest and that it could also take the form of mental rest. I learned to take the time to free myself of worries, of pressures, of unnecessary emotions.
Although I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend, the hard work that was put into making this weekend happen was enormous. The people who prepared for our retreat had to do a lot of small things that might seem to be unimportant like preparing water for the participants to drink, making sure that there's enough utensils to use to eat with, and many more. This getaway has taught me the art of paying the price to achieve the things that really matter to me. The small things I do could make a big difference. It is my job to get up everyday and work towards the things that are deepest in my heart and to enjoy every step of the way instead of wishing I was already where I want to be. Life is a journey, not a sprint. So lets set a steady pace, take baby steps and persevere. We'll be there before we know it :)
