Life can be a kick in the pants. When there aren’t enough hours in the day, days in the week or time to sleep, it can feel like a three ring circus. I think balance is a lesson that everyone needs to learn, and some of us take the hard lesson. With a full-time corporate job, a busy blog, planning my upcoming wedding, and other life complications, there is very little time that I allow myself to stop, breathe and relax. Recently the best thing that helps me relax is reading, specifically Paulo Coelho who seems to centre and calm my mind. I feel like taking the time to enrich ourselves through reading is a luxury, and our brains deserve it!
Once I was in security at Heathrow airport, it was a disaster and I was close to missing my flight. Reading a book while waiting kept me calm and very zen about being stuck in the living hell that is airport security in the wake of a terrorist scare!
How do you guys handle the crazy roller coaster that is life? I would love to hear how people take control and overcome stress. Does this calming picture of a Buddah and a babbling brook help!?
And a Happy Canada Day long weekend to my fellow canucks!
