Life has been more than hectic over the last 6 months. It’s moving at warp speed. Like a movie set in outer space. Astronauts cutting through the darkness of an unexplored universe with streaks of light surrounding them, created by the stars they pass at warp speed. That’s how life feels for me right now. Each star, each streak of light, a moment in my life, more important than the last.
With home renovations, the adoption of a new dog, visiting family, birthdays, barbecues, career changes, engagements and babies the last 6 months have been beautiful – but have moved incredibly quick. They always say that time moves faster as you age. I didn’t believe it, but here I am already wrapping up June and I could swear that yesterday I was complaining about the harsh Michigan winters.
But here’s the thing: If you don’t make time for the slow moments, is it really worth the rush? Not in my opinion. So I’m slowing down as much as I can. I’m squeezing in time to be creative, read, spend time with my family, weed the garden and pet my dogs.
Over the next few months, I’ll be knitting, crocheting and applying for winter markets. I’ll also be moving into a new home and selling another. Not to mention everything that goes into the work I do in my day job. Regardless of all the excitement and distractions, I’m going to try and take the next 6 months day by day, moment by moment.
