If there’s one thing we all need, regardless of who or where we are, it’s Quality Time, both for ourselves and for those around us. Time to just settle back and relax, to spend with friends and family, with loved ones and – for those who have such things – with children. With my hectic life at the moment I’ve hardly had a moment to myself, hardly had time to look at all the wonderful things around me and just be me for a while, and this loss has hit me quite suddenly. Tiredness, that inner tiredness we get when the body is still active but the mind has gone over the top a little too many times, makes itself felt and, like so many others, I just feel like sinking into the depths of my bed and not coming out for a few months.
That would be fine if it were winter; I could hibernate for a while and come out again when the spring flowers begin to show their heads above the fertile earth, but spring has already been and gone and we’re into the first days of summer. Now is not the time to disappear, but it is the right time to just take a step back and reassess things, look to the future as well as to those around you. Not that there is anything that I wish to stop doing, but perhaps not quite is such a mass as I’ve been doing recently. We all need that little break, that time of calm and relaxation, the period between storms of activity and action. For me this is also a time when some of my ideas can be worked over and new vitality brought into life, and so that’s what I plan on doing now. A little less time in front of the computer screen, a little less time learning for college, a little less time with one or two other things.
A little bit of peace and quiet.
Love & Kisses, Viki.
