What’s your hurry, Mama?

Where ya heading so quickly?

Don’t you know … this is your life.

This one with the pile of dishes in the sink from last night’s bake fest.

This one with the piles of clutter that sit around the room, rudely staring at you for attention.

This one with the screaming child with his hands folded across his chest, and anger lingering in his heart.

This one with all those Facebook updates of other people’s lives, other people’s actions, other people’s insecurities.

Don’t you know your life is happening right now while you’re worried about what comes next?

Don’t you know your life is happening right now while you’re fretting about what just happened?

What are you missing out on?

What beauty is passing you, completely unnoticed?

What memories are you skipping over like a never-ending game of hopscotch?

What’s your hurry, Mama?

Where ya heading so quickly?

Don’t you know … this is your life.

:: Project 52: Stay Awake — Slow down. This week, I am going to show you some ways to slow down and come to a near halt — the most beautiful place a family can be most days. 

::  Please join me for slow days and slower evenings for The Playful Family Adventure. It’s not just an e-course. It’s a way of life. 

:: Also, putting a focus on mindful parenting is one of the best ways to really slow down and enjoy life while raising little children. Have you picked up the Mindful Parenting eBundle of books yet? My book is included as well as some others that are really amazing. Check it out.
