My life is a series of events that seem to crash into one another. There aren’t enough hours in a day. I have not learned to clone myself to be at multiple places at the same time. Mundane routines seem to cloud the exceptional. Daily life jumbles together to make a scrambled collage of unfinished projects, work, and social life.
Then, every now and again, I stop. I truly listen to what my heart is telling me. I watch the world around me. I feel how things are flowing, and I make a change. The change does not need to be earth shatteringly huge. For I am not Superman needing to save Lois Lane from certain death by causing the world to spin backwards on its axis. I am me. Not cloned, not superhuman, just me. I like me, even if it is hard to accomplish some goals or stay on task with others. I like to mix up the mundane. I love to flit from one life event to the other. The adrenaline I feel from minor stress keeps me moving forward to accomplish all I have set on my shoulders.
So when you are feeling overwhelmed, please, take a moment to breathe. Take in the world around you for just a moment or two. Always remember your babies won’t be babies forever, the dishes can wait, deadlines are a goal not the guillotine, and most of all, listen to your heart.
Travel well my friends.
