Why do we take ourselves too serious? There is a time and a place to be professional and serious. Much of our adult lives are serious. Our education, career, choosing the correct spouse, raising our children, handling our finances, and planning our future are all serious endeavors. However, we need to have breaks, time off from the seriousness of life. That is why God made the Sabbath, a day for us to stop working, just relax, enjoy life, praise God, and be with family. Every day we should have a break from the intensity of life. Breaks are built into our work lives, they are mandatory times that we have to stop and relax. There are times we have to take a breath, and rest. There are also many times throughout each day that we should smile, laugh, listen to music, read a good book, watch a show or a movie with a friend or family member, take a walk, pet your dog, or just hug someone.
Today, and every day take some time and stop being too serious. We all need time off. Make sure you take it.
