Sometimes life overwhelms, and in an effort to keep all the plates spinning, it's easy to develop tunnel vision. We can't see past our own agenda, and we measure the success of any given day by whether or not we accomplished most of the items on our checklist before falling into bed exhausted, mind racing about the tasks looming tomorrow.
If that sounds familiar, it's not just you. It's also your next door neighbor and the people living one street over and folks on the other side of town and in the next town and the next state and the next country and the next continent -- multitudes frantically racing through life, each one convinced the world will end if his frenzied pace slackens. But guess what?
It won't. And we weren't created to live this way.
