It’s the key to a fulfilled, successful life. Getty Images In our work-obsessed culture, we tend to think of taking time off as a necessity–something we must do to recharge our batteries so we can go back to being productive.

One example was seen on social media earlier this month when Wentz hosted his offensive linemen one afternoon for hunting and grilling. Some of the guys love shooting guns and did it a lot; some guys, it was very new. And also cook up steaks and eat and just enjoy time with each other.

Yes Vote Results Wentz gave his offensive linemen shotguns for Christmas last year. He shares his hunting experiences often, from online videos of excursions with his brother to the anecdote about lying in a cornfield hunting on a Saturday morning last September when he received the call that he would be the starting quarterback.

Even the tight ends and running backs. I think that’s a big part of getting together and building that chemistry not just on the field, but also hopefully do it somewhere we can be together, spend some time, and bond as well. Being a leader kind of goes hand-in-hand.

Are you considering her feelings at all? Is she just supposed to sit around and wait the 2 years that your deciding? I don’t expect anyone I date to sit around and wait for two years. If she or anyone else for that matter gets tired of waiting, then they’re more than welcome to leave and find someone else. However, I’m not going to jump in head first based on an emotion triggered by biochemicals and being confused as to whether or not I’m feeling genuine love for her or if it’s my body’s urges to procreate.

Why every man should take a sabbatical once in his life

At this time of year, dating and relationships blogs are chock-full of posts about where and how you can increase summer romantic escapades. The rub is that many people are simply not ready. Perhaps you recently got out of a relationship, maybe you have lost hope you will meet someone, or you could simply be tired of dating.

Friday, February 29, Politeness Remember back in December when I went up to New Jersey for a wedding and sort of caused my uncle to miss his son’s my cousin’s wedding ceremony? Well, before going to the wedding, I bought the couple a rather expensive gift. My soon-to-be cousin-in-law sent me a nice thank you note almost immediately upon receipt. It’s funny to get a thank you for wedding gift before the actual wedding, but it’s perfectly proper and thoughtful.

After that, as you know, I went to the wedding. And missed the ceremony. I hung around for picture taking and went to the luncheon.

The art of stopping the mental and emotional patterns that constitute our daily living and shifting to a deliberately more reflective and future-focused path is an acquired skill. Most of us are not terribly adept at the two cardinal spiritual disciplines of Solitude and Silence. We live in a lot of noise and commotion. So many things beg for our attention and we mostly feel hopelessly behind all the demands that press against our lives—those books that must be read, that faucet that must be fixed, the child that needs more focused attention or the spouse that feels increasingly distant, the people that need your pastoral care and the promises that you forgot about that periodically resurface and condemn your soul.

And so much more, right? Often the personal retreat can become a mishmash of intersecting desires and compulsions. What do I do first? What are the greatest needs? Or where are the most primary priorities?
