Just a reminder to take a deep breath. When the pace of business in life goes from fast to seemingly tornadic or when it seems the stressful is starting to outweigh the peaceful, pause, and take a breath. Remember, things can always be better, and they can always be worse (much worse). Ultimately, you can face the pace or the stress more effectively if you are grounded by that perspective.
New challenges will present themselves perpetually; that is gauranteed, but you only have limited time on this earth. Don't get caught up in your own head, in the whirlwind of activity or in the negative energy others can create. Take a pause, take a breath, and smile. You only have so many minutes with others around you - make the most of it by taking a deep breath, keeping things in perspective, and beeing that sense of calm, that pilar of strength, that friend or leader that you know you can be.
