Switch off!

switch2

There are times when all we can do is lean back, take a deep breath… and switch off.

I don’t know if it’s just something I struggle with, or if there are those of you who share this, but it seems like life is a constant bombardment of noise, colour… and demands. I think with the way things are in the world at the moment, it all seems even more of an assault on calmness than usual.

My life has been something of a rollercoaster of late, so it’s become time for a short break. I will be away for a couple of nights… only a couple of nights, but I am really looking forward to a change of scenery, and some quality time with family. After all, my son starts uni in a few weeks, so I am cramming in time with him now, while I can 🙂

A couple of nights away is a good and happy thing. A time to sit and chat, to explore old places, and discover new. It’s much needed. Yet the feeling of excitement has reminded me how much I need to squeeze a time of ‘switching off’ into my everyday life too… or at least each week, be it drawing more, or reading more. I shouldn’t need nights away to achieve this peace… it’s just the simple things really….

It’s the quiet times of rich calmness which soothe my soul and replenish my spirit.

See you in a few days 🙂 ♥
