After the whirlwind of summer and the chaos of a new job description in fall, October came along with the madness of #write31days.
I remember those days in South Africa where I would sit and watch my floor dry after mopping, relishing a simpler, slower paced life.
The past 11 months, it’s been go go go. I’ve been back in the USA for nearly a year now, and like has returned to the busyness of American life. With it’s schedules and stress and general un-relaxed-ness.
This month, I’ve been hearing: Be still.
Enjoy the calm moments.
Count the blessings.
So I’m writing a lot. I’m writing 33 “gifts” away day, part of #1000giftsin30. I’m remembering thankfulness. I’m spending more time breathing and less time running.
And it’s been much needed.
It’s time for Five Minute Friday, where I join up with hundreds of other women who all write together, for five minutes, without editing. Head over to Kate’s place for the full details, and to join in!
