I heard Eva Longoria Parker say on morning TV that sometimes "playing in a different sandbox for awhile" is so important. In fact, I would say, as a positive psychologist, that often it is just what the 'Doctor' ordered. It helps us get our minds off of ourselves. It gives us a chance to meet new playmates and play with different toys. After all, the new sandbox might just have the perfect sifter and/or the great new friend with red hair and freckles. This is not silly talk. We never outgrow our need for change and diversion!
May you be blessed with the capacity to always find a new suitable sandbox to play in, when you need it!
