The benefits of stepping back

One of the benefits of vacation is something that goes beyond just getting refreshed and rested and ready to plunge back into the fray. It's the ability to step all the way out of the fray, far enough to ask: Do I really want to be doing all that?

In the midst of a busy life, it's easy to get caught up in the lists and chores and commitments. Everything seems important.

But when I step back, I can see my life from a distance, on a whole different scale. I stop taking every task as a given, and question which of these things I want to continue doing.

I have no sudden changes in direction to announce. But I'm thinking.
