Withdrawing Within

We walked in the winter rain this morning and then retreated into the house the rest of the day.  I had the entire day to myself, so I spent it within myself.  I thought about and did very little today, and I am absolutely okay with it.  We all need a break, a little time to ourselves and today was mine.

So, be kind to yourself.  Life’s demands will be there in the morning.

Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.
