The world is in a constant state of emergency. So much to do and so little time, they say. But is that really true? I mean, time is time no matter what you do with it. Why not steal some for yourself? People often say, "I wish there were more hours in a day." I don't. I've realized that if there were, I would just find more ways to over-extend myself. I've learned it's okay to stop and have a relaxing cup of tea. Nothing special or scheduled. A nice hot soothing camomile with lemon and honey always does the trick for me. It's the peace we all say we wish we had but can never seem to find. The truth is we don't take time to discover peaceful moments. I find peace when I'm sitting still, holding the hot steamy liquid and allowing its sweet floral aroma to seduce me into a calm, quiet place. It's a space that belongs solely to me. I believe God dwells in those moments. It's different for everyone, but the time is yours. Why not take it?
When was the last time you stopped and just relaxed? Share your recipe for peaceful moments.
