Slow Down

It is so easy in these busy lives we lead today, to have the tendency to overcomplicate things. So much of what we do is our choice. The job that sucks every ounce of energy from us. The endless list of activities our kids are enrolled in, the committees, sports, extra housework, helping out friends, family, neighbours, dog, all to the exclusion of our own needs- it’s all stuff we said YES too.
