The Resting Place

"The resting place of the mind is the heart. 
The only thing the mind hears all day is clanging bells
 and noise and argument, and all it wants is quietude. 
The only place the mind will ever find peace is inside 
the silence of the heart, that's where you need to go."

I love this little slice of wisdom from Elizabeth Gilbert. In an increasingly frenetic world, it is so important to be able to slow down, go within and regroup in a quiet, peaceful space. It's reassuring to remember that we carry that space with us all the time and can drop in whenever we need to pause
and catch our breath. See if you can give yourself the gift of five minutes today to just sit quietly and breathe.
