Kids now live in a world where they're given a cell phone before they hit double digits. Instead of playing with Barbie dolls, girls begin to play with straighteners and makeup -- something our generation didn't do until early high school. I can even honestly say that I've taken makeup advice from a middle-schooler. In what world is that even possible?
We miss so much of our lives everyday simply because we are not present. We carry on like robots without noticing how each event makes us feel or helps us grow. For the last week I have taken a bath with a book and glass of wine every night after my kids go to bed. It has allowed me to slow down and reflect on the day, which is something I never did before.
You have helped me see the light dear Orchid Good. You did what I could not do. You figured out how I could rearrange my days. I am now finding myself relaxed and content. I am accomplishing my daily goals differently. It feels good. Thank you Orchid for helping me balance my time to satisfy my needs.
