Hope you are all enjoying the last few days of summer.
I have to admit,
I've been ignoring the back to school sales
and my heart dropped a bit when I saw mums outside Home Depot.
I know it's coming, I'm just not quite ready yet.
Ya know the feeling?
We have been blessed with a busy summer
packed with many fun adventures.
The month of August is looking refreshingly slow.
But with these slower days,
I'm realizing that I forgot how to slow down.
I don't know how to just chill.
If I have a free few hours, I find myself feeling anxious trying to figure out what I need to accomplish during that time.
Should I work on lesson planning?
Should I finish fluffing the laundry room and my craft space?
Should I paint the living room?
Maybe I should paint my old desk . . .
Stop it already crazy girl!
So I'm learning how to slow down this month.
I know an anxious heart and busy body outlook is not how God wants me to spend my days.
So this month,
I'm slowing down.
I'm going to allow myself to read in the middle of the day.
I'm gonna have a day without a 'to do' list (now that will feel weird)
I'm going to play with my girls and be spontaneous.
Because those silly girls keep having birthdays even when I tell them to slow down.
Oh yea, it's gonna be good.
I think this slowing down bit is going to agree with me quite nicely.
Hope you take a few minutes to do something for YOU today!
