In the midst of all the rushing about, take time for the little things.

"There is what I call an "artificial urgency" that can screw up our lives, if we let it.
Social commitments, work deadlines, spouses, kids, parents...all of that daily maintenance that life requires...it doesn't feel artificial, it feels REAL.
Radical hospitality starts within - you gotta be ok with being ok with yourself.
Respect yourself enough to step away.
Set priorities and boundaries that work for you and your family and let the rest go.
As much as possible, optimize the things that energize, minimize the things that drain.
