Motivation Mondays: Rejuvenation

Spread the love

“We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise, we harden.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Motivation Mondays: Rejuvenation

Motivation Mondays: Rejuvenation

We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come. Joseph Campbell
For the last third of life there remains only work. It alone is always stimulating, rejuvenating, exciting and satisfying. Doris Lessing

Rejuvenation by Russell Sivey
Talking of being in a deep sorrow
Masked for a time beyond
I hide, under my shell of invisibility
I sulk, for I am lower still
Than I was to begin with

But then something triggers
My thoughts explode with all kinds
Of special feelings of heavenly
Love, brought to me by so many
Of my friends, and my family
All of whom I cherish
Without which I would certainly
Drown in my own darkest nights
Of emptiness…

But I only see light filled love
Beaming all around me
Lifting me higher each day
Making my pain go away
So I may make it again this way
And love all today Via

Rest when you’re weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work. Ralph Marston

Rejuvenation – Poem by Arti Chopra
Trampled upon
The tender
Green grass
Turns brown and withered
Where it was mutilated
And ravaged
The healing rays of the sun
And the earth
Help it
To regain
Its green
Sprightly glory
The healing of time
And Mother Nature
Once again
Performs its magic
So slowly
And surely
Begins…. via
Arti Chopra

    Rejuvenation is just so good for the soul and something we all need to function well and lead fulfilling and enjoyable lives. I have found spending time in the great outdoors to be a great way to help with rejuvenation and vitality. It helps you to reflect and recharge in a natural setting without all the modern distractions and you come home feeling refreshed and ready to begin your other challenges.

    I have self proclaimed myself as the Queen of Rejuvenation. As a massage therapist for 14 years, it was very important to me to practice the many things I would suggest to clients. Even after ending my career, I took with me the many ways to rejuvenate, doing things like bath rituals on a weekly basis, body brushing daily and trips 2 to 4 times a year even if they were mini excursions to towns close to home. 🙂
