List four ways you like to relax or give yourself a break. Then name a fifth, something you've never been able to do, a self-care dream."
Here we go:
1. Listening to music. Soft, melodic with a touch of the Caribbean or Mexico. While in a bubble bath is an added bonus.(Image: pillows by Darwin Bell at flickr; some rights reserved)
2. Sitting still. Perferably outside. In the sun. On a porch swing.
3. Napping. Or a good night’s sleep. With no interruptions.
4. Thinking on Jesus. And his love.
5. Someday, I’d like to spend a slice of time at a retreat center like The Hermitage or a Franciscan center like Porziuncola Retreat House.
