LIFE IS: Fast

timeMy youngest daughter just had her 1st birthday! My how fast time flies! It’s seems like just yesterday I was pregnant with her…

With all the crazy that life brings (work, kids, daily chores, hobbies, etc.) it sometimes feels like we never have enough hours in the day to get done what we need to. Looking back in retrospect, the days, weeks, months go by so fast! Try and leave work when you plan to, and don’t take work home with you! Ask your kids about their days and take as much family time as you can. Save the cleaning for another day… Do that thing you’ve always wanted to try! Try to slow down, take a deep breath and live IN the moment! In EVERY moment, because they really do go by fast.

I’m definitely a Type A Personality, so I often find myself looking towards the future instead of being in the here and now. At times I will even follow my children around as they are playing and pick up each mess when they drop it and move on to the next toy. But I have to stop, remind myself, to just play with them instead. The mess isn’t hurting anything…except all my mental cues that are telling me to clean. Ignore them! You will be happier that you did, I was and am! Learn to be messy, play more, laugh more and find that happiness and contentment to just be!

I am totally the person who cleans up as my kids make the mess. Something I need to work on is playing with them more. Its good to hear there are other people out there that struggle with this piece of family life too. Thanks!
