Shortly after the New Year a good friend of mine told me she was trading in a traditional New Year´s resolution for just one word. That’s right. She picked one word that was to be her theme for the year. I’m not a big fan of resolutions anyway so I thought I would give it a try too. With her help, I decided my word for the year would be “peace“.
Amidst the stress of being a graduate wife, our daily hustle and bussle of things to do, all the “electronic noise” we are constantly subjected to (how long has it been since you posted on facebook, used the Internet, saw/heard an advertisement, or read a tweet?), I find myself in a very frazzled state sometimes.
So my Monday’s Food for Thought is to take a moment to actually have time to stop and think! Here’s to turing off the computer, leaving the dishes in the sink for a few more minutes, taking a deep breath, and finding a moment of peace on this Monday.
When’s the last time you gave it a whirl?
