"Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower."-Hans Christian Andersen
Taking time to play is sacred. Taking time to play has to become a priority. It helps us connect with ourselves. It helps us have room to breathe. It helps us dream. All of us are busy with our daily life, we rush through appointments. We are over scheduled, we are overworked. We postpone our dream, we postpone our down time. Today, take time to do something that you love. It could be a small thing like watching a sunset. It could be walking into a bookstore and losing yourself in the wonderful rows of books. My husband had an opportunity Saturday to go fishing with childhood friends. When he goes fishing he becomes a boy again. I love the enthusiasm that he comes back with. He smells like the ocean and his eyes shine. When he described his day he captured the silly laughter and the joy that they shared to be fishing again. I was happy for him. We all need an escape. We need to nourish our spirit. When we nourish the spirit we can face our daily challenges. Life is fragile.Life does not wait for us, so today do one thing that you love. Today nourish your soul.
