Taking time to refresh and energize oneself is an important component in keeping a positive attitude. The challenges and anxieties of life have a way of wearing us down. Stepping aside and rejuvenating can keep us strong to continue to fight the good fight. We will each seek renewal in our own unique way. As an introvert, I seek solitude on a regular basis to maintain my energy level. An extrovert will seek other methods to find refreshment. Regardless of our temperament, we all need to find that time alone with God.
