Welcome to a new series on the Modern Burlap blog. Each Wednesday we’ll be sharing a bit of ‘Wednesday Wisdom’ because let’s be real, who couldn’t use a bit of motivation and encouragement each week?
We’ll be sharing bits of wisdom from mamas around the globe, with topics ranging from motherhood, love, children and even dinner time shenanigans. Each post will be accompanied by a downloadable ‘bit of wisdom’ that you can print out as an encouraging reminder or use as a computer or phone wallpaper. We hope you’ll join us in this space each Wednesday to be lifted up in encouragement and community.
We’re kicking this new series off with a simple little quote that we feel packs a big punch. How many times do you find yourself stressed out or anxious about something, and then find yourself at an obligation you were already committed to or simply in the backyard with the kids and you realize you’re really enjoying yourself and feeling more relaxed already? This happens to us all the time. Play is so important. For the mind, the soul, and the body. It’s too easy to get caught up in everything that needs to be done immediately: work, dishes, dinner, laundry, homework, phone calls, etc. But when we make time to play? Well, magical things can happen and afterwards our stressors always seem to be bathed in a new light.
Go ahead and allow yourself time to play this week. And please feel free to download and print this quote as a sweet reminder. Right click and save the above version to print or for your phone, and the one below for your desktop. Enjoy, and we’ll see you back here next Wednesday for another round of motivation!
