Coming home yesterday after working twelve days in a row, I continued the frantic pace into the evening. Checking email, reviewing and adding to my to do list. And in a quiet moment one word came to mind shouting -ENOUGH! We push ourselves to the wall and continue to push and push. More, more, more. Juggle, multi-task, go faster, do more. ENOUGH. Time to slow down and rest.

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” – Mohandas K. Gandhi

“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.”  – William James

“Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”  – Pooh’s Little Instruction Book, inspired by A.A. Milne

“Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.”  – Will Rogers

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”  – J. Lubbock

“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast-you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.” – Eddie Cantor

“We are always getting ready to live but never living.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. Yeah, the superwoman thing has been making it hard for all of us. Do you think guys suffer from the same problem? Seems like they don’t go through the same thing. M

    • Maybe but they don’t admit it. Or they are better at shrugging it off and don’t take it as personally.

  2. Love your post! I know I am always so grateful that I am a terrific “multi-tasker”. At times I too get overwhelmed and just say, “Enough”. Have a great day and relax. 🙂 We deserve to take a break here and there and everywhere.. lol

  3. When we reach the point of “enough” that’s when change starts to occur. And that can be a good point because we realize our way of living is not what we desire. The courage to change and focus on how you want to be liberates you at one point or another. Just have to make small adjustments…as long as you know where you’re going, you’ll get there!
    Always motivated, Jose LugoSantiago
