This week has been all about trying to find calm moments in the midst of chaos. This Friday night, as the week comes to a close, I’m feeling peaceful. Today I even escaped the office for a bit to take a drive on my lunch break. I went to this lake on the outskirts of town.
The mist was rising from the trees, making today feel like fall was here, even though its official start is nearly a month away.
It was a quick drive around the lake, but it made me wonder why I don’t do this more often. In fact, I have never taken this drive on my lunch break in more than three years living and working nearby. I think all the change in my life right now is reminding me to take time for things that matter: my family, my health, my sanity.
So tonight I am feeling calm and collected. I hope that feeling lasts when Monday morning rolls around. And if it doesn’t? There’s always a drive around the lake.
