Do you ever get to that stage where things become so overwhelming, you just want to hibernate even for a short while?
For me it comes from spending time as a child, reverting-back to my inner thoughts, using contemplation to come to terms with, to understand my many problems and how to deal with them. My thoughts became my sanctuary. They helped bring about many conclusions to many problems and they still to today.
Perhaps we should all take time out to reflect, to think about, to meditate; anything that enables us to work through our problems without the stress.
