Balance. Choice. Recognition.
The first official weekend of Summer has arrived!
If you are not enjoying the season, it is time to start! Have you been enjoying
- The Farmers Market
- Fresh Strawberries or ripe tomatoes
- Soft-serve frozen custard
- Walking barefoot in the grass or on the beach
- Attending a street faire
If not, get started RIGHT NOW!
Enjoying Summer (or any other season for that matter), is a personal choice. Striking balance in your life becomes increasingly important as we live in a time of never-ending media and news cycles. Try to remember there was a time when television went “off the air” every night, people actually spoke to each other (rather than at or around), and went to bed early enough to get their eight hours of sleep. Sounds “old-fashioned”? Perhaps but that is not the same as “not a good idea.”**
So as we officially kick-off the Summer, choose to bring balance into your life; value the importance of play, recognize you are a part of a greater whole, and be grateful.
**Let’s not get it twisted; many old-fashioned ideas are very well better left in the past but unplugging, relating directly to others, and a good night’s sleep are NOT on that list.
