For the last few weeks I have been watching and truly LISTENING to people. I’ve noticed something that I initially blamed on the heat wave. I was wrong.
People are tired, and I don’t just mean physically.
I see moms in the park watching their children play, but they look like they would rather be anywhere but there. They look physically and emotionally exhausted. Has time with our children become an obligation instead of a joy?
What is happening here?
Listening to people who make their living on the web, I am hearing a tone of weariness overpowering the passion for their work.
The cashier at the grocery seems utterly exhausted as if she isn’t sure she can handle one more day of it all, let alone offering a smile.
What have we done?
Why are we so tired that it takes gallons of soda & coffee to make it through the day?
Have we allowed life to get too complicated?
Has life become unbalanced?
What do you do to rejuvenate yourself and your attitude?
