The world that we live in is so fast paced, that sometimes it feels that if you’re not fighting to get ahead you are completely losing ground. Sometimes, it feels like you’re loosing ground even when you’re trying to get ahead. Ergo, it really shouldn’t be much of a surprise that we struggle to take some time to just enjoy the moment and separate ourselves from the fast pace of modern life.
And that is exactly what my wife and I are doing today. We have some friends in town from TN, and we are enjoying an afternoon with them at one of the Disney resorts. Even though there is plenty of stuff to do at home, and even though I’m missing the Lions game, I feel so at peace as I sit here in the shade by the pool. Just watching all of the families enjoying their vacations, and interacting with the girls we are visiting, it’s so easy to let many of the cares and concerns of ‘real life’ just melt away.
So the next time you feel like you have too much stuff to do, don’t hesitate to take a step back and smell the roses a little bit. Letting the stress and worry melt away will allow you to be more productive later anyway.
And the relief you will feel will be worth it’s weight in gold anyway. I promise.
