Pace

Lately I have been doing my best to change up the pace around here. I am trying to prioritize and I am learning to say no. It's not always easy. In fact, I think they are both habits that I need to learn and stick with. Our regular pace is fast and furious. There hasn't been a lot of time for smelling the roses and enjoying one another's company. We start the day fast and end at the same pace, and I am exhausted.



We literally run throughout our day just to accomplish everything, and most of the time I don't fit in the things I really should and need to. So I'm working on slowing down again. I need to spend my time wisely doing the things that are the most important to me. I need to keep things in perspective and prioritize based off of what I see. I started this last weekend and my was it a good feeling. Spending time in the right places with the right people doing the right things. Soaking in the warmth, watching my girl pretend to be an airplane with her toes in the grass and sharing the day with my parents. It's something I haven't done in a really long time. This pace feels much better.

I completely know what you mean but I slowed it down years ago...so much so that I appear lazy nowadays. It's just easier that way.

I have been doing the same thing lately. Sometimes I feel lazy like I need to get up and get going. But, I feel much better about family and life when I take time to enjoy the small (and big) things.

Oh, this post spoke to me. I feel like I could've been writing it myself. My mind seems to go at a crazy pace, thinking of everything I need to do in a day, a week, a month. I need to learn how to slow down. Enjoy the kinder, gentler pace. :-)
