“Take rest. A field that has rested yields a bountiful crop.”Ovid
As ranchers, our first priority is being good stewards of the land and animals in our care. A huge piece of that stewardship is giving rest to fields and pastures. In fact, at our house, we have plans specifically for letting the land rest and replenish.
Do you know how often we apply such a principle to our own bodies and minds? A shamefully rare amount, and it shows most vividly in our interaction with those we most love.
I won’t share the laundry list of work, responsibilities, and obligations staring at us. We all have such a list and most items on it are self-induced ways of avoiding something else.
But, I will share this belief I hold: Our greatest potential, our most meaningful growth comes not from the busyness we choose but from the rest and reflection we allow. Cheers to purposeful moments of rest that lead to meaning-filled hustle#WeAreRanchers#rest
