“Our frantic days are really just a hedge against emptiness.” – Tim Kreider
What about the other areas of our life?
Rarely do we step back and absorb our progress.
We get caught up in the little things while the tension, anxiety and stress builds up. We see high profile people and everyday workers eventually have breakdowns where they physically, emotionally and mentally can’t take anymore.

How will you refresh yourself this week? Let me know below.
