Last weekend I took myself on a little road trip.
Now I just need to be vulnerable and share a little bit about me, I am not very good at directions. Driving to places and knowing where to go, you see I am very challenged.
Well, last Saturday I made it to New Norcia my first time at this amazing little town in Perth Western Australia.
I decided that I would visit and spend some time exploring the buildings, history. I also wanted to spend some time writing, blogging, working on my book and praying.
I really wanted to spend some time recharging to finish this year well.
I loved the peacefulness of this town, the buildings and the history.
It was so quiet.
I stayed at the Guest House where I had my own room with a bathroom. Yeah! The little things that I am so grateful for.
I love staying somewhere where you don’t need to worry about cooking your food, my meals were provided.
Sunday morning, I woke up early and made myself a coffee, I sat out in the courtyard. I loved just sitting there with my coffee, listening to the birds and not having to rush off to the next thing.
I loved this.
Taking time to be still, taking the time to slow down a bit.
I need to do this more.
I then went for a walk and explored the buildings. I learned about the history of the town and what the buildings were used for.
At 9.00 am I went to mass at the Abbey Church across the road.
The Church was so lovely and the service
I then went and sat in the courtyard breathing in the fresh air, listening to the birds and hearing the bells.
Would I come here again, yes, it is a place where you can come and recharge yourself?
I went home after lunch and I am so grateful for making the time to take some time out.
What is something that you can do on the weekend to recharge and slow down?
I am focusing on finishing this year well.
Let’s do this together.
