How much

more can one take before one’s mind just gives up and demands some rest

So much going on that you don’t know what to think next or what to do next.

Your running out of time and you just want to get it all done in time before the holidays come to an end and you missed having any fun.

You have so much shopping and decorating to do you just don’t know what you will end up doing first.

You skip thanksgiving decoration and go straight to Christmas  your favorite time of year where for a moment you get lost in holiday movies and tradition and you smile more than you usually do.

Your happy and for once all you stress just melts away and life just seems so much easier for you and you begin to learn how it feels to be relaxed and at ease in the life you live even if you know it won’t last.

You suck up as much as you can for soon you will be going back to life that is crazy and out of your control but you hope for the best to come your way and send you on a better path.

I wish I could do that but the very thought of relaxing just doesn’t

sit well with me.

It’s like if  I think or want to do it something comes up and I’m off running around doing all the things I didn’t want to do on my day of relaxation.

relaxing seems like a vacation which I have no time to take or to enjoy if it ever comes around.

Everyone, I hope you all have a great Sunday!

This day is more than Easter baskets and the yummy things inside them.

It’s another day to worship my lord and today is the day he gave his life for me, a sinner and once a lost soul just cruising through life.

I thought I knew who I was supposed to be and what I was to do with my life, but then time slowed down and I became confused on the direction of my life.

Everything I loved and thought was what I needed to do was gone and not even an option anymore.

He guided me to the right place and  everything became clear and I’m where I’m meant to be with the hopes of more to come.

I stop letting my failures or let downs hold me down and I stop trying to be someone I no longer am.

I became someone new and there is no going back and for that I will always be grateful and so today is more than just another holiday or Sunday for me.

Daily Prompt: Relax

Relax listen to the calming music

focus on the good things around you.

Don’t let the stress get to you because the storm will fade eventually

appreciate the things at the time they are in front of you.

So much going on that it just seems like relaxing is far from your mind but you take some time out today.

And you just close your eyes and let it all fall away because, you see today you realized there is no point in stressing over it.

It too will fade away and in the morning you won’t be thinking about the things that kept you from relaxing, but focusing on the moment you relaxed and everything faded away from your mind.

And for once you were at peace and could truly breathe another day with nothing holding you back.
