A friend of mine sent me this 'thought for the week' I felt it was inspiring to read, and wanted to share it with you. Some people at this time of year feel under pressure or anxious . Listening to our friends - and to our inner selves can help: "Listen... to the fragile feelings. not to the clashing fury... to the quiet sounds, not the loud clamour... to the steady heartbeat, not to the noisy confusion... to the hidden voices, not to the obvious chatter... to the deep harmonies, not to the surface discord... to the outcast within you.. Listen to the language of your wounds." By Jim Cotter and his book ' waymarks: Cairns for a journey".
