If you’re feeling frustrated, aggravated, or disempowered, and if you catch yourself always blaming other people for your problems or complaining about their performance, you need to connect with what is really going on. Is it them, is it a situation that requires a change, or is it you? You need a real time-out to evaluate your life.
Taking the time to sort through what you’re feeling is hard to do in familiar surroundings when you’re moving at the speed of light, out of touch with your body and emotions. The ringing phone, ceaseless e-mails, household chores, work issues, and all your relationships are distractions.
Fortunately, you can visit what are aptly called “retreat centers” all over the country. Since I often give workshops at such places, I’ve sampled the spectrum from five-star spas to two-star retirement communities for nuns who rent out rooms to the public. If you search the Internet, you’ll almost surely be able to find a retreat center that fits your budget. Take out your calendar and make those plans now. Otherwise, your busy life will just keep rolling along until you finally crash emotionally or physically . . . or, like I once did, quite literally.
