Refilling my cup

I had arrived 15 minutes early for my meeting with Joy, and I had some work I wanted to finish before our appointment.

I knew that I could sit in the car and finish the work. However, as I pulled the papers out of my tote bag, I noticed the leaves gently blowing on a big beautiful tree. I knew with instant clarity that I needed 15 minutes of quiet and space watching the wind and the leaves much more than I needed to read my papers.

After nine months of struggling to support my daughter who has been battling cancer and to keep up with my business, my cup of inner peace and strength needs to be replenished. I decided to spend 15 minutes sitting in my car doing nothing but admiring the leaves on the trees.

I believe that we all have a core of inner peace and strength, but I also believe that it is a resource that needs to be nourished.  I sometimes have to stop and fill my cup by spending some time appreciating nature, taking a walk, talking to a friend or simply finding a quiet place and doing nothing.
