For a long time I didn't take the time to slow down and appreciate life. I rushed, I strived, I sought, I thought that I was what I did, the achievements I either accomplished or failed to complete. The resulting internal conflict drove me nuts. I broke. I crashed.
Today, I reflect upon life and meaning and purpose and impact amid simple and quiet pursuits - days without clocks and emails and back-to-back meetings. I seek sunrises & sunsets, nights spent under the stars and meals cooked by campfires. My metrics have changed, my focus refined.
It's a quiet, simple life today with a peace that surpasses all understanding.
