A lot of times it feels like life is moving at the speed of light.

It is difficult to slow things down and appreciate where you stand at this very moment. 

There is always something that needs to get done or somewhere you need to be.

I am the same way.

I have a hard time slowing down. 

There is always something that needs to be improved in my businesses, my training, my life.

Not often are there times when my mind is not racing with what comes next and the course of action it will take to get there. 

However, this past weekend (Labor Day Weekend), I was able to get away for a little while.

I still worked each day BUT there was a small window of time where I felt like everything had slowed down.

I could finally look up and take everything in without feeling like I had to get something done.

Although I realize that I need to do that more often, I don’t allow myself to take the time and look at how far I have come.

It is not necessarily a matter of giving myself credit. It is moreso a matter of giving myself the opportunity to take a breath and take in my surroundings.

The title of this article says it all…

Sometimes it is important to get away.



Be present.

Show gratitude.

There are so many positive things that come from getting away, if only for a minute.

It is rejuvenating and it allows us to deeply appreciate what it took to get to where we are now. 

Take some time to get away.

Take care of yourself.

Get after it!
