So far, what I've read seems like common sense. It's about balance. Many of us are caught up in a cycle of doing, doing, doing without taking a moment to catch a breath of air, notice our surroundings, or recharge the batteries we are so busily depleting. This book urges us to stop, take a moment to reflect on how we treat ourselves (whether we are eating healthy fuel and maintaining our physical strength with exercise and rest), whether we are living in tune with our core values (spending enough time on the things that are important and less energy on the things that just have to be done), and where our passions lie.
I had to take a reading break to take photos of the roses in the backyard.

This book is making me think about values and priorities and where I spend my energy. And that's definitely worth pondering.
