Some days it's the way the importance of what you're up to in the world sweeps you out, as if into a tide.
Other days it's the way the breeding inbox and never-ending details tap incessantly on your shoulder.
Or the way the future breathes down your back. And then you blink and turn the calendar and wonder where all those weeks and days and hours and minutes went. You wonder what you missed noticing and forgot to tuck in your heart and carry with you.
You wonder who you could have been if you let those moments change you instead of chase you.
Sometimes it's helpful to get tired of things like hype and speed and hamster wheels that promise you so much but in the end leave you spit out and spent with calendars heavy on scribbles and light on memories.

What if you didn't need a sabbatical in Tibet or a hike through the Himalayas to turn the ship around? What if reflective living was as simple as a moment in front of a mirror, a snapshot and a line penned on a napkin, or a book of holy heart words tucked in your bag the exact minute you need them?
What if it was a gift you could give yourself, that arrives gently at your door?
