Slow Down and Enjoy Life

Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going to fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.

-Eddie Cantor

I know. I know. I have been such a stranger these days, but I’ve been keeping busy, I promise.  Perhaps a little bit too busy. I’ve always been the kind of person who keeps busy at all times and often has multiple projects going on all at once. But I believe that slowing down can also be a virtue.

Being off work in the summers, I always try to make the most of my time and work on things I usually do not have time for when I’m back to work. Whether it’s writing, reading, deep cleaning, or working on other things. So, on the days the boys are in daycare, I usually spend most of the time working hard on something when I could/should be giving my body a rest sometimes.

It’s really not easy to keep up with everyday “life demands” personal projects, and of course,  those cute kiddos of mine who keep me on my feet, but I try to manage. In the mornings, I like to have activities with my boys: library time, story time, baking at home, playdates or go eat breakfast somewhere.  This keeps us all active but it is becoming more and more difficult to do given the heat we are facing in AZ during summer.

and also given my new condition…

There is a time for everything as we all know it. I suppose slowing down sometimes may feel like giving up, but I just need to remind myself that it is not so. It is simply taking care of yourself so that you can be better, stronger.   I know that it is time to slow down, which my body has been begging me to do for some time. So I will listen to my body, my doctor, and my hubby.

I will slow down and enjoy life.

Wisely, and slow. They stumble that run fast.

– William Shakespeare
