Every so often we need to say “Yes” to some quiet, “think” time. It can be as simple as a walk in the woods, a long soak in the bathtub, or a ride in the country. No matter how stressed or busy or overwhelmed we feel, we all need to create a physical and emotional quiet and calm space to reflect and recharge. The harder it is to carve out a time and place, the more important it is to do. And if it seems impossible, then it’s absolutely essential. You don’t need to pretend it’s a priority; it actually is one.
Every once in a while, it’s important to do an overall inventory. sometime today, find a quiet space to check in with yourself; write down your short and long-term goals, and articulate your passion and dreams. You’ll then know what kind of life you’d like (and deserve). And that’s not only a great start, it’s the beginning of the life you were meant to have.
