Going Softly


Today, I need to remind myself to Go Softly. The past five days have been a blur of working, parenting, and driving here and there, with a nugget of Get Away To The Mountains for an afternoon. I feel over-stretched. As I was driving home from taking the oldest one back to college last night, at around 10PM, I could feel the Almost Tears welling up, telling me I had overspent myself in too many ways over last days.

If you, too, are feeling overly Busy, Baked or Burnt, take it easy on yourself. Make choices to nourish yourself often, even if it means putting off a chore, phone call or email. Just Sit and Be Soft for a little while.
