“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it” (Rumi). How often do we get in our own way when it comes to taking care of ourselves? Last time you had an opportunity to take a break or have some fun, what did you notice about your self-talk? Did you think that you were too busy, or did you feel guilty about taking some time off from your responsibilities? And then how often do we close ourselves off to love that is offered by another? Are we afraid? According to Steve Chandler, fear isn’t anything, it is just the absence of love. Let’s open our hearts to love ourselves and accept love from others. Let’s get our of our way. And take some time off!
