Rest Stop

We all know what they are, rest stops. You see them off the interstate, but we always streak by them at 80 miles per hour to get to our destination faster, then we can rest. But we never do.

This week Rink Rats takes a rest stop, time to recharge and get a better perspective on life. In this world of I-this and 200 channels one should stop and rest. Many of us think we stop and rest, but do we really?

A rest stop can be a ten minute walk during the work day, a long weekend to visit family, a visit to your local park or garden to take in the beauty, an hour in your local library, simply a rest stop is time to relax and be yourself. No sucking up to your boss, significant other, kids – just suck up to you.

Put the email away, no Facebook, Twitter, Nightly News, office politics, for ten minutes, ten hours, ten days, or ten months – just take the time you need.

So Rink Rats this week is taking a rest stop. We hope you do to.
