Thankful for the Luxury of Idle Time

Time is valuable and idle time is a luxury!

 

From morning to evening, we rush, rush, rush and often don't have the time to take a deep breath and get some rest.

Today after an early Thanksgiving dinner with friends, we went on a leisurely boat ride. There was nothing but fresh air, wind, waves, and water birds flying around. 

It was quiet and peaceful as the boat was gliding through the water. We enjoyed the sights around us and our conversation.

There was nothing we had to do or needed to do. Even the dog had a good time. 

It was just idle time spent in a pleasant way and for that I am thankful today!

Hi Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES, I love the picture, goes perfect with your post. I have to remember not to take idle time for granted..ever.

Oh, what a wonderful day.  When you stay busy most of the time, idle time feels soooo good.

Beth Atalay seeing these two pelicans sitting on that sign was just a reminder for me that we need to take it easy sometimes.

Susan Haughton that is so true as long as we enjoy that time and not feel like we have to fill it with busy-ness!

Sylvia, I could have used some idle time.... I climbed god knows how many stairs today, my feet and my lungs are still on fire.... the Funicular could only take three people and my clients and  the listing agent had the luxury of riding.... I am amazed I am actually on the platform instead of passed out on the couch:)Endre

My day was just that. A good day to stay inside and read and just enjoy being home.

Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES it can be easy to forget that we need idle time to stay energized.  Sounds like a lovely Sunday!

Several years ago we had a little workshop at a software development company I worked at.  A question was asked, what is your goal in life.  I was amazed at how many mentioned "Free Time."  I was one of them.

Hi Silvia... I'm so envious for your bit of idle time... wishing for some to come my way... 

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) about 2 years ago

I couldn't agree with you more. Soon I will be taking two hour walks again by the ocean in Florida without a care in the world and if I do have a care, it can wait.

Good morning Silvia - that works for me too.  I call it work life balance.

Time to relax and unwind is so critical in this world we live in. Also, to disconnect from online and instant communication is important.

Lou Ludwig very true! Thank you.

Myrl Jeffcoat time is one thing we can't get back once it's past!

Nina Hollander hopefully soon!

 

Joe Pryor there is nothing better than walks by the ocean!

Grant Schneider ...And not an easy thing to achieve!

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert sometime when I have forgotten my phone, it reminds me how nice it is to do something undisturbed!

We all need some idle time to enjoy the simple pleasures of life and the beauty around us. It sounds heavenly, Silvia.
