Life can be so full of projects, commitments, appointments, meal-planning, ‘home-work’, projects….oops! Yes..
Life can simply be full ~ and that’s wonderful.  B A L A N C E can often elude us with all of the plans and then the ‘un-planned’ throwing the proverbial ‘monkey wrench’ into the mix.

Maybe we need to ‘schedule’ some ME time.. Make a date with ourself and lock that bathroom door, run a soothing, warm bath and take 15 minutes ‘OFF’.  I know we all have different lives with unique challenges. This may or may not work for you ~ I sure hope that, against all odds ~ you can find the time to both make these life-enhancing bathing crystals AND enjoy them!
