Hopefully March will be out like a lamb. I’ve been bathing in 48 degree weather, which sounds terribly cold to this native Arizona, but the acclimated Washingtonian…it sounds incredible. I’ve been relishing in time with Ben, my girls, friends & a nice visit with my mom. Life is too short to feel tied to blogging (since I don’t do it for a living) or keep my incoming traffic here consistent. I would be defined as a failure in blogging terms (i.e. don’t allow days at a time without a post), which is bull if my aim in life were to live for the stats & being popular.
But I suspect that I, like you, have other things in life that need to be lived and if that means taking a break; well, then a break it is. I was recently on a date with Ben and he was talking about how much he needed to be surrounded by good music & books. Then, he went on to say, “life’s too short to read boring books.” Isn’t that true! In so many areas of our life, I feel like we could sub the “read…books” part and put something else in. It’s finding the areas that are enriching to our souls, mind & body. Life truly is too short to read boring books, to short to watch crap shows/movies, to short to fill my time with life outside of my own reality. Lent is this Wednesday, and again I’m reminded to quiet my soul & mind, in order for me to hear what is truly good. To fill my body & soul with good & lovely things. To know what life is worth living for (because it is shorter than I know). Wherever you are on life’s journey, I hope you are finding those still & quiet moments to fill it with the truly good things.
I have a big surprise coming in my next post, which might come out tomorrow or Tuesday. Stay tuned!
