Stand Still

One day in late August I was outside puttering around in my garden, before I knew it my puttering around turned into working up a serious sweat. It seemed that at the very moment that I needed to cool off an ocean breeze came out of nowhere.  I stopped what I was doing stretched out my arms, tilted my head back and embraced the cool breeze… if you stand still you will feel the breeze.

For many of us our calendar of scheduled activities and events run our lives and dictates how we spend our time and with whom we spend it with.  Well I am here to advocate that we sometimes stand still and feel the breeze whether it is individually or together. Start off by penciling in your or our feel the breeze time.  And for all of those married people please don’t write down the usual dinner out or movie night… boring! Instead think about writing down something new and different this time.  When you open yourself up to trying something new you will find it to be interesting, exciting and very memorable.  Ok, for singles put down what ever it is that you say to yourself that you don’t have time to do or what you would like to do if you had more time to do it… make a commitment to yourself and set aside some time to do it.

Trust me I am not trying to tell you how to run your life. I am simply suggesting that you try something that works and which I have discovered will only enrich your life. So if you stand still you will feel the cool breeze.


Every day, take some time for yourself. Love yourself. Honor yourself. Give priority to your physical, mental and emotional wellness. – Unknown
