Stopping To Smell The Roses

You know that feeling when you’re really busy - hectic, rushing from one thing to the next, constantly forgetting things and missing deadlines? I’ve been operating that way lately. We say to ourselves, “well, it’s just for today, or this week,” but how long has it really been? At some point it just becomes normal and not being busy is the thing producing anxiety. (Like without activity and people needing things from us, we might cease to exist.)

It’s got very little to do with today’s cute polka dot dress, but as I sat down to write a rushed blog post, I decided to slow down and be intentional instead. I needed this reminder today and I’m sharing it here, on the off chance that it’s a welcome reminder for someone else! Slow down. Sit in silence. Enjoy the rest.
