Today I have a to-do list a mile long and I am feeling the pressure, so I did the only sensible thing: I went on a long walk in a garden near my home.
Sometimes we just have to jump off the roller coaster of life and regain our equilibrium. There are flowers to be sniffed, paths to be walked, breezes to enjoy.
Yes, those things are still on my to-do list, but I am calmer, more peaceful and better able to address them.
If you are in a season of life where things are spinning out of control, make an appointment in the next two days to spend some time relaxing and recharging.

I LOVE that you’ve used dandelions in the initial graphic! Such a great way to quietly say that there is beauty in the simple things, even the weeds!

Yes, even the weeds. 🙂
Could I have permission to put the picture on my blog (linking back to you) and talk about how it tied in perfectly with a conversation I had with my husband this morning about how crucial my daily two-mile walk/prayer time is?
Sure! Send me a link once you post it. 🙂
