I have a hunger, a yearning. This propels me forward as I chase after my dreams. Knowing simplicity brings happiness is not enough to deter me from busyness and frantic pace. I want to accomplish so much. I want to taste, feel, live.
The internet is a beautiful place. I have made some priceless friendships and received exciting opportunities. It is also the biggest distraction and dissatisfaction-creating machine. You never know what you don’t have, until you see someone loving it.
It is way too easy to be totally connected online and at the same time disconnected with what is happening here. now. Independent of what others would think or how it would look through the lens of the iPhone.
I think I will start taking back my weekends. Making them mine. I used to refuse to blog on the weekends, but then I got busier. Then somebody worked more. Then weekend became my only time to blog.
Meeting needs. Investing in the future. Savoring the tidbits in daily life. Rushing and running are not necessary! This busy season will end when the month concludes. As June begins, I am going to take every minute seriously and decide: what am I making time for today?
My passion will always burn – but instead of consuming my energy I will turn it into fuel to help me rapturously enjoy my children, my husband, my God, my life.
