      I was writing in my journal yesterday morning and it occured to me that I didn’t really have anything to say. I started reading over past journal entries. Seems like I’m always on the go, my mind is constantly active, I have a list of things to do on a daily basis that leaves little time for just sitting quietly. I also realize that I don’t get outside much. I walked to my garden to get a lemon and the sun hit my face and it felt good. I looked at the garden my husband has created with all the fresh vegetables and herbs and realized I contributed nothing to it. I’m indoors all the time with either my work, cleaning house, doing laundry, catching up on paperwork. I’ve nearly forgotten what the outdoors feels like.

      So yesterday afternoon Joe and I drove to Keokea and walked along one of my favorite roads on the island. We packed a picnic, sat on a blanket and watched the sun set over Maalea Harbor.

      Do you take time for yourself? What do you do to relax? How do you like to unwind? When was the last time you really did something just for you?
