Wisdom from Sarah Remington

Make time for your hopes, dreams and goals.

Five years ago I had a life-altering experience that has contributed to the person that I am today, the adoption of my daughter, Mia. As my love for her grew, so did my hopes, dreams and goals, which were no longer just for me anymore but also for my daughter, husband, family, friends and the global community at large.

With the demands of our busy lives it is so easy to lose sight of our hopes, dreams and goals. At every turn we are distracted by text messages, cell phone calls and mounds of junk mail.

Each day I steal a few minutes to focus on myself and what I can do to make a difference in the lives of people around me.

As morning breaks and the rest of my household are still sleeping, I sit peacefully in my favorite chair, close my eyes and meditate. I pause for a moment on all areas of my life that I would like to enhance and end with good thoughts and wishes for my family and friends. Meditation helps me to gain new perspectives on stressful situations, manages my stress, and helps me to focus on the present….Continuereading at InspireMeToday.com.

All tho I am retired, I am busy with lots of things so I find that it's best if I work in self care and moments to reflect thru out my day. I've lived alone for a long time and if I'm not up to par, nothing gets done so ignoring my own needs is not an option.I don't do the usual excersize stuff and often don't even make full meals, just make lots of nutricious 'grazeing' foods to have on hand. I tend to savor a few bites here and there, naps are incredable rejuvinating habits because once the mind is shut off, the body can go into high gear repairing work with out all the beliefs about what's possible interfering. We all buy into so much unnecessary stuff.

Taking time out for your self is usually the first thing to be crossed out of a busy schedule,
so its always good to be reminded to put it back at the top of the agenda.
Thank you for the reminder.
