It’s the weekend and here at the Simply LIVEd Life there’s a challenge- pick one verb to intentionally engage in during the weekend. That’s right, pick one verb and do it. If you’re gonna be a LIVEr, you got to be a DOer.
First on the agenda for relaxing this weekend is a massage at AVA Wellness. I’ve been before and I am so glad to be going back. It’s been a long week for me, especially at the 9-5 gig where we are hosting orientation and welcoming new students to the University. I look forward to my rub down and at their new center city location on the Avenue of the Arts. Plus, the weather this weekend is s supposed to be some kind of wonderful. Sigh 🙂
I used to do yoga pretty regularly and then I stopped. I honestly think it’s because I moved and I didn’t find a new studio that I enjoyed as much as my last one. Kinda makes me feel like a yoga snob. But while I haven’t found a new yoga place yet I did come across a pretty cool Yoga DVD and will be doing some sun salutations from the comfort of my home this weekend.
Sabbath is another word for rest. And guess what? There’s a whole society dedicated to living a lifestyle that makes room for rest and relaxation. And guess what else? I’m a member and if you think it’s for you, you can check it out here, and you can join in if you want! Here’s the great thing about Sabbath Society, it’s a group of folk who are just trying to figure out how to regularly surrender, trusting that what needs to get done will get done in due time. It’s a group of people who believe God may have had a point when even He decided to take a break. The society is completely online and it’s really neat to check in and see just ho people are inviting rest in their lives. I look forward to connecting with members and talking about…rest!
Love In The Time of Cholera
My aunt was all about this book the last time I went to visit her in San Francisco. While I was somewhere making plans to go hang out with friends in the city, catch up with fellow clinicians from the conference I was attending, or checkout a museum, she had her feet up and was reading Love In The Time of Cholera. So while I picked up the book from the university library a couple weeks ago and started the book, this weekend I plan to make time to read that book like it’s nobody’s business. I’d love to finish the book this weekend especially with another trip to San Francisco a few weeks away, I can’t wait o discuss the book with my aunt.
