Give yourself a break.
That doesn’t mean to say that you should drive to the closest bar and have lots to drink or go to a movie. Just enjoy the day, your normal existence. Allow yourself to sit in your home or take a drive into the mountains. Park your car somewhere; just sit; just be.
It sounds very simplistic. But you begin to pick up on clouds,
sunshine, and weather;
your chatter with your grandmother and your grandfather, your own mother, your own father.
You begin to pick up on a lot of things.
Just let them pass like the chatter of a brook as it hits the rocks. We have to give ourselves some time to be.
