it's so easy to get caught up in doing, going, crossing things off the list,
and in the meantime miss out on the moments that make life sustainable.
do you have little ones?
sometimes i have to stop cleaning or working or doing the neverending list of stuff that repeats at the end of the day and enjoy my children- the way they think and play and make believe and dance and laugh and have time for all of the things that shape their world. are you like me too? do you hear yourself saying, "i've been so busy this week." "life is crazy." "i'm so tired." often all of those sentences are true, but what if we shifted our language a bit, even if life is crazy, busy and tiring?
today, in the midst of so much on all of our plates, i hope we can:

slow down
accomplish less
savor more
get down on the floor and play with your children
pretend + imagine
spend time on things you care about, even if no one else notices
look up at the sky
sit quietly, even if just for a moment or two
write a note to someone and put it in the mail
ignore the to do list for an afternoon

happy friday to you, friends
wishing you a taste of slow intentionality as you wade through the business of life
