I’m not really certain how we ended up here, at the end of March already. I am certain of one thing, though: living your best life takes paying attention. Not like being in focused study mode all the time, we all need times to cut loose and relax. But if I get too caught up in the busyness of each day, the endless to-do lists that I feel I need to keep crossing things off of, time passes without my awareness. When that happens, my happiness quotient drops way down. My liveliness and my care for others disappears. There’s an old Broadway musical called “Stop the World, I Want to Get Off!”. I don’t want to stop it, just slow it down. I want to stop participating in the American cult belief that my degree of harried stress determines my worth as a person and as a productive member of society.

This concludes my Thursday morning soapbox!
