If not repeat!
When life is too much – of too much,
it’s probably because
its too much of too much!
So what are you going to do about it?
I’m thinking it’s time for a break. Ease up on things. relax, wind down.
It’s your life we’re talking here. How about being good to yourself
… for a change!

Yes, for those of you who have started to follow A Penny for your thoughts this quote was taken from today’s post. I guess I really wanted to make a point to as many as possible about our need to relax a little bit more in our too busy daily lives! I hope the point was made, be good to you – you’re worth it. Going crazy from living an insane pace isn’t.

I think there are many of us who felt this post was written specifically for them, me being one. Thanks! 🙂
You have been on my mind, muchly, dear friend, sort of as if the vibrations of your thoughts/emotions have a more direct connection right now. I will admit to being more focused with some of the posts I’ve been writing, in that regard LuAnn!
Can’t tell you what that means to me. I have starting writing you an email, so watch out, it could be a long one. 🙂
I’m totally up for that, and here for you my friend, as long as need be! 🙂
You have meil
Humans seldom relax the way a cat can (…your wonderful photo proof of this)… I hope the person stayed still so the cat could enjoy itself! —Jadi
Hi Jadi, no we don’t, do we? The teenager holding franky (cat) was also napping, I captured them both asleep, she requested not to have her face shown, however she appeared as blissfully relaxed (in that moment) as he did! Thank you for stopping by for a visit and taking you time (a precious commodity) to comment, ver appreciated by me!
Slow down. Breathe. wow….. is that possible? Do people really achieve that? (grins)……. huggs xxx
Giggle, sometimes! xx
It’s all good. Gotta’ share that reminder to the world!
xx 🙂 🙂 xx
Easy to forget that one RoSy, but easy to do too! 🙂

I been working so much, just reading this post, relaxed me. I will take breaks through the day, thank you Penny for reminding us of something so simple.
My pleasure Doris. Amazing that one of the most simple things to remember can be the hardest! I’m so glad you will take those breaks … take care of you, you’re the only you – you have!
thank you Penny, you too enjoy the you that you love!
A work in progress but I’ll give it my best shot Doris, thank you for your caring words!
watching my cat I’m learning daily better how to relax …
Oh that’s good Frizz. Cats are experts when it comes to relaxation! Actually I think their experts at most things! 🙂
We all need a break as life is busy. You deserve it too. Be good to yourself. Lots of love from Ute xx
I’m not taking a break right now Ute, this was a message for some of my excellent blogging friends who I sense have been working their backsides off recently in their daily lives. Reminding them to stop a little and relax. I’m enjoying the blogging experience with people, just like you, right now and have no plans for a break in the near future, But thank you for your loving thoughts, they are very much appreciated by me! Much love to you, xo
Oh good! 🙂 Keep spreading your love, we love you!
Thanks, I love you too! Win-win going on here my friend! 🙂
Yesterday, I go to a garden and I feel refreshed 🙂
That is excellent Yoshiko, one of the best places to be to unwind and relax (by being closer to nature)! 🙂
Yeah, suitable for the introverts like us 🙂
Hi Penny! This was a great post and I so loved that cat. I’m with Alastair…I for one will miss you! But everyone needs a break every now and then. Hope you had a great day, Penny. 🙂 Hugs Paula xxx
Not going anywhere Paula. Right now I’m lovin’ the online experience! My posts are for others who need to be reminded to relax. Hugs to you also my friend! 🙂 xx
Being Bipolar, I always need to be reminded of this one! Lol
I am that person that can get lost in my own thoughts. I try really hard to centre myself. Hugs Paula xxx
Balance in life is darn hard, Paula. For all of us. Something I’ve worked on for myself for quite a bit. There are just “those” days. And I know you know what I mean, but I have my little mantra, and it usually does the trick, I stay very grateful for what I do have. Much affection to you my friend, Penny xx
I thought it sounded familiar. I thought I was having a case of deja vu.
It is definitely something that needs to be seen by as many people as possible.
Are you really going to take a break from blogging? I will understand if you are, but you will be sorely missed,.
Nope, no break Alastair, not going anywhere. Just a reminder to others to not work quite so hard my friend! 🙂
I am having to cut down on blogs I read every day as I am having no time to myself. Telling someone I can’t be their friend today didn’t help either, although it will be in the long run.
I am frazzling my brain at the moment. I feel I am being pulled in so many directions, with no time. Oh well, it will sort itself out soon
You do read quite a few Alastair, and even if you skip a day and don’t visit each one every single day, they all know you need to have a life too! As do they! It will sort itself out, remember to be good to you! You’re the only you that you have! 🙂
My kids are off school next week and down at their mothers so I may take a break for a couple of days, although I know I would feel guilty for not visiting some people, especially the ones that I always visit no matter what. Yes, I am the only one I do have and the only one I will have. so I will try my best to be good for me. The smurf and the sociopath have shown me that it is almost impossible to trust. But I digress, if I don’t visit your blog next, I apologise in advance as I will be taking a day or so off
I understand, just take care of yourself please, You are important to me! Much love, Penny xo
I will try my best Penny, thank you
