It was my wish, as I signed off last week, for us all to be able to slow down and notice a little bit more.
Easier said than done, right?
Our lives sometimes go in cycles, and there are times and seasons when life is just busy, and there’s not a whole lot we can do about it. I don’t know about you, but in my life it feels like I’m in that busy cycle, with the end of the school year coming up, summer changes and all that entails. I was thinking about that this past week, about my wish for us to slow down and notice, with my own life feeling definitely less than slow…and, let’s be honest, my brain feeling a little too full.
But even in those spaces and cycles of busy, I think we can find a bit of time to slow down, to find a little more spaciousness. A couple of nights ago, toward the end of the night, I took a quick walk around my neighborhood and talked to a friend while walking and noticed these ridiculously beautiful peonies that are blooming in my neighbors yard. The other day I sat by the creek with my coffee for a few precious minutes. It was just a few minutes, it wasn’t long, but it was something. Certainly, it wasn't as long a walk as I would have preferred, certainly it wasn't as long a sit as I would have preferred, but I found a little bit of spaciousness in the midst of busy.
My dear friends, if you, like me, are in a busy cycle of life right now, I hope you can give yourself permission to find a little bit of spaciousness in the midst of busy.
Have an amazing week, my friends.
