Ahhh, the weekend is starting and my mind and body has been set to autopilot. LOL. Simply put, 'the mind is willing but the body is not!' I've had quite a week and I am beginning to feel it has taken it's toll on me. I feel sooooo lethargic and all I want to do now is sleep, sleep, sleep.
Being busy at work and at home does not give me much time to appreaciate the simple pleasures of a hot cup of coffee. Sometimes I just get three big gulps of it and a quick flip through the newspaper and then I'm off to the next task at hand. Breakfast seems to be a thing of the past, while pressure and ulcers are the "in" thing.
As I was cleaning my drawer in the office a small piece of paper fell out. I picked it up and found a beautiful message inside. Something that I needed to hear this week. So I'm sharing it with you.
"The longest journey is the journey inward, for he who has chosen his destiny has started upon his quest for the source of his being." ~ Dag Hammarkskold
It further says, "We often looked to other people, places, and things for our answers and for our happiness. We thought others could free us from the pain, fear or guilt. This has never brought any permanent happiness and in the long run we have not changed.
It is time to begin to trust that small voice within, coming from the person we really are. It is time to look within and begin to uncover all that has been blocking us from our truth, from our Higher Power. It is time to discover ourselves."
Now wasn't that beautiful? I wonder who put it there? I loved it.
Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves. ~ Henry David Thoreau
Sleep rejuvinates the body but a little contemplation revives the soul. Happy weekend everyone! =)
