Stop


Sometimes, and when lots of things happen around you, things that you can explain and accept, and things that u can never explain nor accept, one needs a vacation. Vacation for the mind and soul. One needs to tell himself "stop, yes stop, forget all this, and take your mind awaaaaaaaaaay from such environment". Don't know if it will help or not, but do you feel so too? Overwhelmed with things in your life, that you scream for a stop sign somewhere, just to catch your breath and reflect or reanalyze the situation.

Stop. How can you creat such stop signs for you? Force you to stop, literally stop and don't think about it.

Yeah we hear lots of shrinks keep saying "will you have to think of a good place, or you need to take it one step at a time", or whatever they say to comfort their patients. But that ain't easy.
A stop sign is all I need once in a while just to sit down, relax, reflect, and analyze. But the life's routine is chasing me and I don't seem able to create such points in my life. Gotta run all the time. Time is money . No time for thinking the decision. No room for slackers. Life is a wheel, and you can't stop it, so you better be analyzing while it's going. ufffffffffffft

Stop. That’s all I need, for just few days, damn it, few days all i ask. But it ain't working at all. Thing after thing after another thing and then something, always chasing me and demanding quick response, or reaction.

Wouldn't be nice if you can stop the wheel, and escape to some place where you take your mind off, and install another mind that is free of duties, or previous emotions, or even any thoughts. Stress, after stress.

Stop, that’s all I look for these days.

Hello,

You might want to check out this really good book called In Praise of Slow: How a Worldwide Movement is Challenging the Cult of Speed by Caryl Honroe.

Best,

no not rude at all dude. I believe that when many things just happen and overwhelm ypu, you may wish for a moment of pause of the whole life for just few days to catch a breath.

Dana
