Maybe it is just me, but when I am going through something, I wish for time to just stand still. I mean, it is amazing that although you may be feeling down and just want to stay secluded to your room hidden under the covers that everything around you just keeps moving forward. It seems as though no one is paying attention and perhaps that no one cares or has time to. It is on days like this that I find myself retreating within myself and unable to reach out to others and be that ray of sunshine that I strive to be everyday.
I know this sounds just like any other saab story, but it is my story and one that many people have to deal with from time to time (hopefully not all the time). But today, I realized something. It is okay to take a break, to hang the sign on the door that says “gone to lunch”, and to delay answering an email the minute you hear the computer chime. You know why? Because if you are going to be a person of influence and have meaningful interactions on a day to day basis then you have to take a step back now and again to recover and repair.
You cannot give away what you do not have. If you do not have peace in your heart, if you do not have joy, if you do not have love, then whatever you are selling is a knockoff and no one wants to invest in counterfeit, bootlegged goods. So, allow yourself to take a moment (or two, or three). Then people can experience the real thing.
P16 is your life….HATCHED!
