For quite a long period of time I had a Volvo that logged over two hundred thousand miles. The secret to this success was a complete tune up once a year. All of the systems were tested,tires were rotated or replaced and even new windshield wipers were added.This attention to maintenance is also part and parcel of my keeping my computer. in tip top condition.
Maintenance and periodic attention to the direction of our lives is certainly more important than car or computer health, and yet how often do we give ourselves the time to reflect on what is the status of our journey?Do we address our goals for the coming year?Are there the necessary supports to insure our mental and physical well being? Have we given ourselves permission to say no to requests that sap our bodies and spirit?
Like the mechanical devices we maintain and service we need to periodically have emotional and physical tune ups.
