Getting Enough Rest

Getting Enough Rest

Most of us are rushing through life at warp speed, wishing beyond anything we could simply get off the busy bus for a moment. Yet, as much as we wish to slow down, we keep making choices that keep our lives moving at a clipped pace. We add events and obligations to an already packed life. We are all clamoring for rest, a touch of margin to a crowded life. Consider today how you might slow down just a bit. What could you let go of that might bring a bit more peace and relaxation? A simple choice here or there could make a huge difference.
