Let me then be the voice that calls to you that says: "Be still". Take a breath, smell the fresh morning air, marvel at the beauty of the day, take 5 minutes to just be still, quiet and reflect. Remember your promises to yourself, your family, that this year will be different. Focus. Be still.
Yes, it is true, life as we know it today is hectic, more and more demands are made on our time, we have to deliver more, and at a faster tempo than ever before. We have to constantly be ahead of everyone else to succeed, we cannot afford to miss a step, yet all this comes at a price. The question is : am I prepared to pay the price, is it all truly worth it? When all is said and done, will I be happy with what it all cost me?
It is up to each individual to answer these questions. Only I can decide, only I can say "STOP".
Easy? No, nothing that we want to do differently to the norm, to what we are used, to what others expect from us, is easy. Change is never easy, but it is worth the effort. My own sanity, my family is worth it. The world and its demands will always be there, shouting ever louder for my attention, but I have only this moment, this now, this family, once. Be still....
My wish for you this week is 5 minutes everyday of absolute quiet, a 5 minute refuge from the bustle of life...... to really listen and hear the whisper of your soul.....
