Last year’s midwest Winter was long and cold, but this year we’ve begun to experience Spring already. And with the early daylight savings time upon us it seems even more so. We’ve already passed the “ides of March” and I find myself asking, “How did THIS happen?”
I’m one of those lucky people whose schedule is different everyday, and has been for much of my adulthood. After teaching in a high school (where every day was nearly the same) I set off on a different path. Now I have to look at my calendar every day just to see where I’m supposed to be!
Needless to say, my calendar is very important – and if I fail to mark something down (as I too often do), well, you can imagine what happens…
Our lives are busy! And the older I get it doesn’t seem to slow down. How about yours?
Have you fallen into the trap of being “too” busy?
Do you take time for just being?
