Live your life in a way that allows for moments of reflection, rest and being fully present. Simplify your schedule to create margin for impromptu shopping trips and lazy Saturdays.
When was the last time you decided, on a whim, to do something alone, with a friend or your spouse? Has you time become so consumed with things to do that you have no time to add anything spur of the moment to it?
Everyday I wake up to list of MORE than 10 things that need to happen that day. Some of those things are personal and some of them are business. I spend all week working on things outside the home and then on the weekends I fill my time with things of the home. I try my best to SQUEEZE in the grandkids, my kids and my husband. Sadly, even they seem to get leftover time.
Purposefully plan at least one weekend a month that you have NOTHING planned. Be sure that the house cleaning, grocery shopping and grass cutting are all done before the weekend or choose to skip it this one time. That morning when you wake up, decide last minute on what your day will consist of. Go hiking, ride a horse, catch a train, take a bus to a big city, ride a motorcycle, you choose. Your body, mind and family will thank you and you will be surprised at how excited you will actually be as you rest and enjoy this unscheduled time.
