Well, my weekends have been so hectic and crazy I just haven't had a chance to sit down at the computer to do anything! So here is my Sunday Confession...
I have secretly been hoping that the world would stop turning, that I could take a breath and catch up. I seem to live my life at hyper speed and I never have enough hours in the day. Why is this? I do not think I'm the only one suffering from this phenomenon. It seems to be a pervasive element in today's society - the constant rat race - we all live it and seem to accept it as normal; but is it really?
Were we designed to constantly be living our lives in a state of stress? I don't think so, I've heard countless "experts" talk about the overload of the cortisol steroid to our systems and how bad it is for us; and yet, nothing changes. We are still stressed and busy and running on empty. Why is this what is considered normal now?
I wrote a short story a few days ago, and I plan to share it in my WIP Wednesday post this week. It is not something that I usually write; but it represents the simpler life I wish I could enjoy with my family and friends.
So, dear readers, here is today's question:
Do you find yourself stuck in a "rat race"? Do you ever wish the life that you live could slow down a bit? Am I right in thinking that this issue affects more than just me?
Looking forward to your replies, HAPPY MONDAY!
