I have been in the habit of living against this grain for too long and my soul has been feeling quite frazzled because of it. I still feel immensely guilty just giving myself time to be, rather than do do do! Given my position in life, this is unacceptable. Crabbiness is truly the result of my own doing. And I want to do something about that.
I am resolute. I will give my soul space to breathe. I will say no to the kids’ ideas less often. I will stop and notice the details, but I won’t get mired down by them. I will go with the flow. I will go out of my way to be kind. Because I can. I will practice what I preach, which is to take time to observe my own contentment daily. I’ve been trying this approach for the last couple weeks and based on the change in my mind I promise you, it is NECESSARY.
Will you enjoy the pace of summer too? Will you join me in observing contentment and just see what good it unleashes in you? I hope so.
