The Underappreciation of Rest in Our Society by Joshua Becker of Becoming Minimalist:

One thought on “Rest #Tinyhearts

  1. I am so convinced on the priority of rest, and building margin in my life vs. the driven,workaholic, lifestyle I used to embrace. I grew up on a dairy farm, under a dad who was a classic workaholic, to this day I can still hear his messages in my brain. I think we’ve talked about this topic in the past so I won’t repeat myself 🙂 I also discovered first hand the more I owe, the more it owes me. We started down the road of rental property…and discovered it is not the financial fix all for the future I dreamed it would be. Evicting tenants, police coming to the property, utilities getting turned off, finding good tenants, heart ache, drama, yada yada…life is too short to spend it putting out other people’s fires, I don’t care if it had the potential to increase our net worth. Peace of mind is a gift.
