Catching Up

Sometimes I feel like I am swept up in the massive wave that is life. I find myself too busy, too involved, too behind, too prepared, too unprepared, too... everything.

Today, instead of being swept away by the wave that has been the month of July, I accepted it. I stepped back and acknowledged the beauty of it. Sure, the waves of life are noisy and unpredictable but they really are beautiful too. Today, I tried to relearn that. To reteach myself to relax, breath, and catch up. And, to not get flustered by the crashing of the waves but to see the big picture and to see the beauty in it. This is a constant lesson for me.
Today, I tried to catch up on much of what has been neglegted over the past several weeks. However, I left time to enjoy the peace and quiet with my children and the company of old friends.

  1. Beautiful words. I could have written this myself with the ups and downs of life I've had lately. I too have found the power in just breathing and accepting life as it is. Very powerful isn't it?
