Isn’t it incredible how busy we make ourselves? It’s a sickness.
I know I’m guilty – sick to the core. Wearing my busy-ness like a badge of awesome-ness - see how in demand I am? I didn’t even have time to get my hair cut this whole summer. I don’t want to be proud of insanity like that.
You know what snapped me out of this madness? Waffles with apples on top.
Aaron made them for me – Pumpkin spiced Pecan waffles with an apple compote, Saturday before my mini sessions began. And as we sat down to enjoy them, I just had to stop and take a picture, because I didn’t really have time to savor them properly. I had to replace what I wanted – to just stop and sit with my sweet husband – with a cheap substitute – a photograph of something delicious.
I need to start saying no so that I have the freedom to say yes.
Yes to waffles with apples on top.
Yes to finishing at 5:30pm even if the work really isn’t finished.
Yes to snuggling with my husby and puppy.
Yes to time with friends who breathe fresh encouragement into my soul.
What do you need to say no to? What do you want to say YES to?
It’s time to reclaim our sanity, friends.
One waffle at a time.
