Keep Calm and [fill in the blank]. I think it is critical to take time to nurture my soul with people, places, and things that make me happy. Life is full of necessary obligations, going to work/school, running a business, paying bills, household chores, and more, but what is it that really makes me happy? I make a point of taking frequent trips to visit my family (in one of those southern states that is mostly warmer than where I live), because being with family is what makes me happy. It doesn’t hurt that my visits are sprinkled with sunsets, beaches, and sunshine, a bonus but not the ‘soul’ purpose of my visits.
What keeps you calm? Where is your “happy place”?
