You peer out the window, or walk outside for a breath of springtime air.You smile, knowing winter chill will soon be gone. Still, a feeling of sadness lingers inside of you.
It may be Spring fever, or even cabin fever. Too busy to evaluate your thoughts, you rush to carry kids to school and soccer practice. You rush to work. You rush to lunch. In the afternoon, exhausted, you rush to check on your elderly loved one. Finally, you rush home, to cook dinner, do the laundry, and tidy up the house. You get the picture.
Your life is a constant rush - an endless obstacle course. Leaving you tired, tense, frustrated and sad.
Take time for you. STOP for a moment. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and just sit, savoring the quiet.
