I can admit it.
I’m a dreamer.
I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on my life and dreams lately. Maybe it’s the gorgeous weather, my husband loosing his job; maybe its just that I’ve slowed down enough to actually think.
To actually enjoy.
To remember what’s important in life.
We are only given an x number of years to breathe.
I’ve had these old country lyrics bouncing in my head for quite some time:
“I’m in a hurry to get things done,
I rush and rush until life’s no fun,
all I really gotta do is live and die,
but I’m in a hurry and don’t know why.”
I want to live.
Really live .
I sat and played with my kids. I played make believe with my three year old. I had so much fun watching his smiles and sheer joy . It was so rewarding. I realized, why haven’t I done this more often? Why am I rushing so much? This time will only happen once.
Don’t always let time pass you by when you are so busy trying to get ahead.
Enjoy the small things now.
