Hi! I moved to a new place. I would love for you to visit me there.

Project: Alive. Day 8. On stretching time.

I saw time stretch yesterday. Literally.

Most of our Sundays are hectic. We are intentional about Saturdays. That’s our special family day. But Sundays are filled with housework, errands to catch up on and the list goes on. Plus of course there are kids who need to be fed, entertained etc.

And no matter how many times I said we need to change that, Sundays usually fly. Fast.

But yesterday… Yesterday was different. I took 2 two-hour naps. I am not kidding. I cleaned the house and did the laundry. I escaped to the bookstore to have my me time and then even got my pedicure done. I read a book. I juiced. I wrote.  I spent lots of time online mindlessly browsing gardening tips and sustainable communities in GA. I did some gardening. I dreamed. I wasn’t productive. I wasn’t even trying to be productive.  I slowed down.

All of that while attending to kids needs with one child being a little sick. Well, of course I also had a supportive husband who helped me by making sure kids were taken care of while I was away.

To some of you it might not look like a lot. But if you have small kids in the house, you’ll know what I mean when I say that time stretched.

By attending to my inner needs first, I ensured all of the needs were met. And I felt alive. Because my inner needs include doing things that make me feel alive. And because I was not rushed and didn’t feel guilty while doing them.

So I am putting intentional slowing down on my list of things to do to help me feel alive.

I suggest you do the same.

Short post today, but I hope you take this message to heart.

Your task for today:

Slow down. Ask yourself what your soul wants you to do today. Find time to do it.

Other little things that make me feel alive right now:

We made a garden for my son. I think I am enjoying it more than he does. That’s my new favorite spot to sit and dream by.

I’ll talk to you tomorrow.
