Our fears limit us. They hold us back. They keep us from living a positive, proactive life that embraces the good and decries that which needs to be changed.

Ours is a complex, fast-paced world. We all know about the treadmill analogy. Some of us run pretty fast. The mind has a hard time catching up with the body. Some of us don’t so much identify with the treadmill as we do the Tasmanian Devil. Either way, we’re moving fast and we need a break.

Everyone I know struggles to balance their work and home lives. No, wait a minute. That’s not true. My retired friends seem to have it down pat. The rest of us juggle, patch, negotiate, apply a temporary fix here and there. This isn’t very satisfying. In short, we feel as if we’re not doing justice to our careers or to our families and friends.

Little kids run everywhere they go. Ever notice that? They don’t just move in a dignified way from room to room like we do. You get the impression that they’re afraid they’ll miss something exciting if they don’t approach life at warp speed.
