hello there, friend,

i'm reminded this week that it's important to take time for me... just a little bit each day.  whether it's five minutes in a sunny warm car, or lingering over a cup of coffee, taking the time to play the piano, making my bed, taking a walk, sitting quietly with a book... little things within each day that allow for a deep breath or two, that reset my frantic mind.

i sometimes think that when we say that we're busy, we perpetuate this idea that we can't enjoy our rich and full lives.  i have a lot of things to attend to this week.  i'm grateful for many of them... they are reminders of the opportunities i have been given.  i can't say i'm looking forward to every single one of them.  but, it doesn't really matter.

i don't like feeling rushed or 'busy', but i do better when i can allow for breathing room throughout my day.  i hope you have some breathing room this week, too.
