My schedule is CRAZY! I have no time!! How will I ever get everything done!!!
TAKE A BREATH!
Now for just one minute – only 60 seconds – look around and see the beauty that surrounds you. It could be those lovely flowers you pass every day and never notice them. Today, for one minute, look at them – see their color, smell their fragrance, and enjoy!
I happen to love sunsets. Whenever I can, I stop my car, get out, and just stand there for a short time and feel myself surrounded by its beauty. It brings me a peaceful feeling and helps me to realize that there is more to life than meetings and emails and more meetings. I’m sure you’ve heard this before: at the end of life, no one says they wished they had spent more time at the office. So think about it, what will you wish you had spent more time doing?
This is the time to put that “something” on your calendar, even if it seems silly – like looking at the stars in the sky before you go to bed at night. Allow yourself the luxury of peacefulness, even if it’s only for one minute.
