In a growing culture of immediacy and requiring that instant solution, often we may look for the elevator to take us up and away from our problems. Sometimes that walk, music, new book, conversation with a friend or doing something different may certainly help in the short term, or even distract us in a beneficial way.
Sometimes you may find yourself in the right place at the right time when the sound of music hits you, and I don't mean the musical with Julie Andrews singing! It could be a specific beat, melody, lyrics, a specific instrument or hey the whole damn thing!
Boundaries are so important in life. They can be the perimeters of our actions, what we will and will not accept. You can still be a great person with a heart of gold and still say NO to people. Boundaries are simply a way of caring for ourselves.
