Rhythm Idea 5: Create Something New
Slide 6 of 6
What were some of the worries that used to keep you up at night pre-pandemic? Did you want to have a stronger marriage? Were you wondering how to have a better relationship with your children? Did you want to learn how to use a prayer journal or start a podcast? Maybe you’ve always wanted to paint or plant a garden.
Now is the time. Inside each of us are beautiful God-given gifts that have long laid dormant and covered in dust. These gifts were given to us because the ability to create or cultivate brings joy and reminds us of our Creator.
It’s a great time to meditate, journal, and really think about the things you’ve always wanted to do that bring you joy and passion.
The game of life as you knew it may be on pause right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t thrive. Let’s face it, before COVID-19 hit, many of us were overworked, overbooked, and overtaxed. It’s a good time to reflect on what you have to do, want to do, and why—and drop those things that no longer bring you joy as you establish new rhythms to live by.
Use this time to live in the moment, not fear.
