The Elusive Butterfly
There was a butterfly of gleaming colors, brighter than the rays of the sun. It flew and flew from flower flower. I followed it across the meadow but...Whenever I reached out my hand to catch the butterfly it kept flying away. Then one day I stopped chasing the butterfly so it circled round, flew about, then turned back, and landed on my shoulder.
R AND R SUNDAY
Sometimes we rush and race to find what we think is really important in our lives. Today is a good day to know that what's really special and important is always within our reach
Let’s face it, who among us hasn’t had periods of overwhelming fatigue, no matter what other underlying issues may be present. We live in a hectic world, where there never seems to be enough hours in the day to accomplish all that needs to be done.
that life is like a roll of toilet paper.
The closer it gets to the end
the faster it goes
Sometimes our lives are so hectic that we need to simply get away. Getting away to a breathing space allows your mind, body, and soul to take a break. That break often creates a moment of recovery and inspiration. The perfect space will help you in feeling safe and free, organized and creative, balanced and positive.
Create your own special space and recharge your batteries as often as you need. My breathing space is sometimes all in my head. I love the beach and can take that trip just about any time I want to think about it. Going to the beach is really something I rarely ever get to do, but I can think about it. I can close my eyes for a few minutes and just imagine how peaceful it would be to walking along the shore and watch the waves lapping right up to my feet. I can see the graceful seagulls soaring in the sky.
I do have my camper in the woods which I love to go to. It is a great breathing space, but I'm not always able to get there either. I can't count on being there all the time as it is a very seasonal thing. I can only go there in the warm weather months.
The days go by faster and faster it seems. My mom was right when she said the older you get the faster time flies, but no matter where I am or what I'm doing, I can still take time out to allow myself some breathing space.
It's Sunday, my day for R and R. I'm taking a breather today at home. I am enjoying it to the fullest.
Hope your Sunday is filled with some of that great R and R too. Take a breather.
