With all of the racing we think we have to do everyday – where are we going?  We go to work, meetings, we taxi our children around while they go, go, go.  We have appointments and meetings and it never seems to end.  We schedule ourselves until we meet ourselves coming and going.

How about going nowhere instead for awhile?  How about taking our time?  What if we took an afternoon off and just wandered around?  Would the world come to a screeching halt if we did?  What if we let go of all the things we think we “should” be doing and just relaxed for awhile?

The truth is that we can be much more productive, clear minded and actually happy when we take a break and pay attention to what brings us peace and joy.
