Mom’s Wisdom Wednesday: Idle Energy

Fact: A car uses 1.6 ounces of gas idling for one minute. Half an ounce is used to start the average automobile!

Even when choosing to remain idle in life, energy and resources are still being utilized within our world. True, there are times when remaining motionless is best and necessary. Yet simply idling through life does not assist or serve anyone, including self. In any action chosen, the goal to consistently contribute to the storehouses that we utilize daily, aims to build up for times when remaining still is necessary. Understanding that even in our idleness we are consumers, liberates us to maximize our potential, conserve and utilize our resources with intention as often as possible. Creatively store up for the times when remaining motionless will be necessary.  

Even if found in an idle state one can remain effective and productive. During idle is no time to rev your engine! Using wisdom gained through life experience can be a compass for identifying when and how to use your state of idleness in a positive way.

Energy is always required to get started. Be conscious of how you use your energy. Start your engine with intention and purpose. Be consistent and do not let IDLE steal potential energy that will power greater activities and produce amazing results!
