Life just seems to build to a crescendo sometimes and I then dig in my heels, grit my teeth and keep going. Maybe it's my conservative Christian upbringing that leads me to this modus operandi. Why do I keep going when what I really need to do is to step out of the "running stream" and STOP and take a deep breath. What breathes life back into me is being alone. It's amazing what one hour by myself can do for me. I feel physically lighter. I'm able to smile freely again, to give again to my husband, my daughter and my son. I just NEED to remind myself to take that time out that is so vital for myself and my relationships.
