My kids and I were driving home from the beach a few weeks ago in early July. The days are long and the sun was headed towards the horizon as we were started home from a day on the water. It was just a spectacular evening to watch the sky change colors and the sun set as we drove through the Eastern Shore on our way back to DC.
As we were driving and I was watching the sun set, with nowhere else to be, with nothing else to do, I was thinking about the cycles we all go through. I’ve personally been in a bit of a busy cycle of life and work…all good things, but also busy. I can see a slowdown coming up, and while I’m enjoying all the various things I’m doing, I am also really looking forward to the slowdown.
As I watched the sky turn a little pinker as the sun dipped below the horizon, I was thinking about the pockets of slow we can find, even in the midst of busy cycles of life…the spaces in our busyness that allows us to slow down a bit, to breathe a little deeper.
My dear friends, whether you are in a slower time in your life, or whether life feels a little on the busy side at the moment, I hope you can find some pockets of slow, some spaces where you can breathe a little deeper, notice the world around you, and find a little more rest.
I hope you have an amazing week, my friends.
