To run out into the middle of the street and yell “hold on! Wait one second!”.
The problem with slowing down, taking a quiet path and living for the moment is that the rest of the world often ignores our good sense.
My life right now is all wheel drive, pedal to the metal, don’t dare to rest. But that isn’t me.
My mind is out of step. It wants to slow down. Rest. Take a moment.
I have no idea how to make it work. How do I take care of those I love and not ignore who I am?
I want to sit on the end of the dock and just watch the sun set.
I can’t. Someone needs me.
Their problems overshadow mine a thousandfold.
The slightest complaint sounds feeble.
I will do what I can. Be who I need to be.
That is all I have.
