A Tai Chi Life- Take Time for Yourself

The only time you have, is the time you take….

adapted from an old Irish prayer:

Take time to work, it is the price of success.

Take time to meditate, it is the source of power.

Take time to play, it is the secret of perpetual youth.

Take time to read, it is the way to knowledge.

Take time to be friendly, it is the road to happiness.

Take time to laugh, it is the music of the soul.

And, take time to love and be loved.
