Set Aside Quiet Time, every day

You want me to what? I don't have "any time for quiet time."  My simple answer is yes, really you do.  I would like for you to consider just for a moment to carve out of your today 10 minutes to yourself.  Whether it is 10 minutes of meditation or yoga, spending a little time in nature, taking a bath, or even reading a good book, quiet time is a vital part of life.  Spending time alone, helps to balance the noise and confusion that encompasses our day. Start a quiet time ritual today. I guarantee you will feel more balanced and relaxed.

Need more help with implementing self-care, call one of our therapists today at 954-800-0108.
Thank you, Kacee Tannenbaum, LCSW

The Train of Life
by Marv Hardin
Some folks ride the train of life,
looking out the rear,
Watching miles of life roll by,
and marking every year.

They sit in sad remembrance,
of wasted days gone by,
And curse their life for what it was,
and hang their head and cry.

But I don't concern myself with that,
I took a different bent,
I look forward to what life holds,
and not what has been spent.

So strap me to the engine,
as securely as i can be,
I want to be out on the front,
to see what I can see.

I want to feel the winds of change,
blowing in my face,
I want to see what life unfolds,
as I move from place to place.

I want to see what's coming up,
not looking at the past,
Life's too short for yesterdays,
it moves along too fast.

So if the ride gets bumpy,
while you are looking back,
Go up front, and you may find,
your life has jumped the track.

It's alright to remember,
that's part of history,
But up front's where it's happening,
there's so much mystery.

The enjoyment of living,
is not where we have been,
It's looking ever forward,
to another year and ten.

It's searching all the byways,
never should you refrain,
For if you want to live your life,
you gotta drive the train.

Need help with learning to drive your self-esteem?  Please call one of our counselors at 954-800-0108.
