Every once in awhile we all need to break the inertia of daily routing by hitting our family’s reset button.
If we don’t pause to enjoy where we are, each day starts to look like the rest; a blur of emails and grocery lists played out to the soundtrack of a T.V. that’s perpetually running in the background, even if no one’s watching it.
When is the last time you hit reset?
On Saturday afternoon, once the chores and the writing and the schoolwork were done, we headed outside to enjoy the pretty fall leaves. I’m so glad we did. We walked trails and farm roads, played with my DSLR, and talked. It was the kind of day that stands out to me as a memory, instead of running together with the busy days on around it.
What are your plans this weekend?
Would you consider putting your computer away, turning the T.V. off, and leaving your phone in the car while you took your family for a walk somewhere pretty? You don’t have to live somewhere exceptional or travel someplace exotic to live well, so I challenge you to slow down for just a couple of hours to enjoy this moment with the people (furry friend, included) you love.
