In Other Words… Make the Visit a Good One

"Once in a while you have to take a break
and visit yourself ." - Audrey Giorgi

I have a friend that I don't see very often - we work in different places now and life is busy...but when we see each other we don't do "fluff". When we were seeing each other on a regular basis, our visits included: I check on her, she checks on me. Sometimes it wasn't very pretty.

There are times that I visit myself with "fluff" I listen to music, walk, read, some other stuff.But other times, it's a real "visit". What is it that I need to tell myself? Do I have the honesty to face my own inner self and say what needs to be said? Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.

If I want my "visits with myself" to be profitable, I need to nurture an examination of where I am and where I need to be.Sometimes, it's not pretty.The quote is right. "Sometimes we have to take a break and visit yourself." But it shouldn't stop there - visit yourself for the right reason. Do the right things while you're there.

If your "visits" with yourself are full of fluff, your walk with God will reflect that.

If your "visits" with yourself focus on the "who" that you are, and where you should be, you'll find changes taking place. Good changes; God changes.Visit yourself, take the opportunity to connect with the "who" that you are and ask the One who is with you always what you should do next.

  1. I like your provoking thoughts relating to "fluff". We had some of the same thoughts in writing on this, but I love the "FLUFF" idea! Enjoyed "meeting" you.

  2. Yes, I like those times with Him a whole lot. :smile:. He always points me in the right direction, especially if I go the other way...
    Either, I am really busy and don't remember blog designs from one day to the other, or you did change it since Saturday?!? I hope you did change it...

  3. No, you're not losing your mind!

    I'm having an awful time with the template - I thought I had a good one, but it was very icky in IE. Then it just all messed up.

    This one has a fluid width, so we'll see how it goes.


  4. I love your reference to "fluff". Another contributer to this quote mentioned visiting ourselves by looking at ourselves through the right mirror. We do tend to "fluff" up time alone with distractions...being afraid of what we might find if we are too quiet with ourselves. What a great reminder you gave us!!

  5. Thanks - I was glad to see how many other women went in this direction.

    Today is going to be a "visit" day, only I'm taking text books along and my Bible.
