I came across this poem this evening while reading an e-newsletter. I loved it and had to share. Enjoy and remember… take time – make yourself some tea, pull out your yoga mat, take a bubble bath, and write in your journal. Ahhhhhh.

Take Time (Author Unknown)

Take time to think – thoughts are the source of power.
Take time to play – play is the secret of perpetual youth.
Take time to read – reading is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to pray – prayer can be a rock of strength in time of trouble.
Take time to love – loving is what makes living worthwhile.
Take time to be friendly – friendships give life a delicious flavor.
Take time to laugh – laughter is the music of the soul.
Take time to give – any day of the year is too short for selfishness.
Take time to dream – dreams show you what is possible.
Take time to work – work is the price of success.
Take time to do your work well – pride in your work, no matter what it is, nourishes the mind and the spirit.
Take time to show appreciation – thanks is the frosting on the cake of life.
