Whenever I'm just running around with my head cut off, I try to think of the song "I'm in a Hurry (And Don't Know Why)" by the group Alabama. The song is all about just realizing that "things" can wait and the most important part of living is actually living. I remember one time I was going to work, and I wasn't late, but I felt rushed and I was thinking of all the things I had to do and then this song came on the radio.
I just took a deep breath and let it out slowly. I told myself I had time to get everything done and that I should just enjoy the drive, which was through a nice little valley with fields and a creek and a sky wide open. What song do you listen to when you just need to remember what's important?
