The little ones are asleep and the house is quiet. I’ve just finished an overdue project and emailed it off. I have had several busy weeks. The days seem to be slipping by faster and faster, yet I feel as though I am standing still in the center of a storm of activity. No longer am I in a panic to accomplish all the things. Quality time with loved ones is always pushing aside my to do list, as well as taking time for myself.
These lessons have been a long time coming. However, life helps us achieve the perspective we need when we need it. I have had a lot of little things happen the last few years to aide me in embracing this much needed lesson. The one thing that is lacking is more quality time with those I do care for and those I wish to know better. It is amazing how much time little ones take up, as well as cooking wholesome food. I have some ideas on how to spend less time in the kitchen without sacrificing quality. If they work out, I will definitely share.
Prayer, meditation, and mantras have been my guiding light the last few weeks. I am determined to keep this new found sense of stillness. so, I am being mindful to use these techniques throughout my day to stay grounded. Each day gets easier.
Reading has been odd lately, I cannot seem to find a book that sucks me in. Every once in a while this happens. Eventually, I will find something that reels me in and keeps me until it is over. Anyone have some suggestions?
