Take time to chill with those you love

I’m busy. You’re busy. We’re all busy. In fact most of time, we actually brag about it. Have you ever met someone that was like “Yea, you know, I’m not that busy. I take time for the things that are truly important, and the stuff that’s not, I ignore. My life runs on my schedule according to my time”

Yea, me neither.

Most of the time we are so busy we don’t even have time to really understand if all that “stuff” we are doing is even worth it. If it even makes sense!

We do it all none the less. I’m bad too. I really struggle with it.

When was the last time you took a couple hours to just be. A couple hours to sit and think, a couple hours to just go for a really long walk and think. NOT surf on the phone, not read a book, not ANYTHING, just time to “be.” Heck forget a couple hours, when was the last time you took 20 min and didn’t do anything in particular.

I know for me, it’s probably been years. It’s kind of sad and embarrassing. Gosh, I’m freaking too busy, and you know I need to get it under control. I’m guessing you’re the same way.

Let’s both work on it, deal?

My wife has a cool chalkboard by our front door, she writes stuff on. Dang it’s always so good, so relevant. Sometimes it’s stuff she makes up, sometimes she puts up some famous quote. Right now it says

“Silence is an environment in which great ideas are birthed.”

I freaking love that one, and I’m so bad at it.

I’m in though. Are you?

What would your life look like if you spent 15 min a day just in silence.

What would your life look like if you stopped all the extra activities, stopped all the busyness and just spent time by yourself, or with the ones you love, just hanging out, just being, just living this life together.

It’d be pretty spectacular I’m guessing, what are you waiting for? Take time to chill with those you love.

Onward
