The Carousel

Round and round,

Faster and faster,

My life seems to be spinning.

More and more is added

to every minute, every hour, every day.

All seems to be whirling out of control:

More responsibilities, more deadlines, more tasks.

More, More, More.

Stop spinning!

I need to get off.

For just a moment, a minute,

To catch my breath

And regain my equilibrium.

Then when I am ready –

Calm, collected, at peace –

I will get back on and enjoy the ride.

Do you often feel your life is spinning out of control?

  1. Not sure about out of control but definetly gets busy quickly a lot of the time. Our weeks and sometimes weekends get pretty filled up. I try and make a point with my wife to have at least one weekend a month that is just for us and not filled up with stuff. Its important to have find balance so we don’t drive ourselves crazy! Hope all is well with you and your family! Cheers!


    1. For the past week I have not been able to write on my blog and it is sorely missed. I love blogging and it is a sad moment for me when I cannot write, read other blogs, and communicate with those I have come to know.
