Have you ever made a choice between saving your sanity and feeding your soul?
Any guesses which I picked?
It is a bit like a chicken and egg dilemma. Which comes first? Can you really have one without the other?
You can if you choose feeding your soul.
After you do, you’ll find sanity returns along with reason, perspective, and a healthy dose of reality. None of it – whatever it is – is all that bad, or important, or immediately necessary.
I hopped in the car at 4:09 and set off after a 4:19 sunset. Twenty-one minutes later, I returned home with no real stunning photos of a pastel-painted sunset, but I did have myself a bit of a breather. A time out. Several small moments spent on my soul rather than the shoulds, have-tos, and musts.
Here’s what you do:
Press pause. On everything.
Make no promises and don’t look back. Many promises are guilt-driven sanity robbers anyway. You’ll get to it when you get to it. So there.
It doesn’t take long to feed a soul.
Your sanity will be waiting for you when you get back.
