Once upon a time the idea of being sent to time out was anything but a welcome addition to our lives!
The thought of having to sit quietly in one spot contemplating what we’d done wrong was more than we could stand. As time marched on and we got the hang of doing what we were told, we found a new appreciation for a little time out. After all, it was a moment when we could catch our breath from the hustle and bustle of the world around us.
For many of us, our time with needle and thread has become our time out.
As we lose ourselves in the push and pull of needle and thread through fabric, it’s perhaps one of the few times we truly disconnect from the world around us and reconnect with ourselves.
Some days we’re able to enjoy the luxury of an extended time out, whilst other days the moment is but fleeting. There are occasions when we’d consider our time out to be productive, whilst at others we’d describe it as being more idle than industrious.
It’s important to hit pause occasionally and put yourself in time out because chances are these days, no one else is going to do it for you!
