“There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired.” F. Scott Fitzgerald
They lay there knackered
feeling spent by life’s demands
Thankful for the rest…
A yawn, sleepy nod
the weary traveler’s sign
Exhaustion has won
When you feel knackered, don’t fight it. Take the time your body needs to rest or you will rest permanently in a cemetary. We burn ourselves out for nought. The rewards seem so great until our health fails.
“Fool that I was, upon my eagle’s wings I bore this wren, till I was tired with soaring, and now he mounts above me.” John Dryden
When she feels knackered
grateful she’s alive … not dead
Sleep calls the tired
demands we find ways to rest
or health pays a price
Nowadays, when I feel knackered, I ask myself what the work before me is worth over my health and life. I’m yet to find work that merits such a choice. I’ve never been one to lounge about doing nothing but I know that rest is what fuels our body, our creative output and helps us heal. I’m still learning to give in to exhaustion … it’s worth the rest. And you?
