I certainly cannot be the only person who feels this way: In the winter, when they days are so much shorter, I start to think a lot about how quickly life is going by. It seems like every night when we are putting the kids to bed, I get this thought of, “Didn’t I JUST do this??”
Obviously we all feel like life speeds by, but sometimes that feeling is overwhelming. Like I need it to slow down just a little bit. Maybe it’s the lack of sunshine and daylight hours that do it to me. But, how do you snap yourself out of this and just enjoy the time you have?
I care enough to make sure you don’t miss out on anything I posted earlier this week. Obviously you have a good excuse for why you didn’t read. I forgive you. And I update you:
Use headings and paragraph breaks to break up your posts. Blog posts are a specific genre of reading, and people aren’t usually cozying up with their laptop to enjoy the novella you just tapped out. Instead, they are looking for quick, easily digestible information and entertainment.
Make this possible by using short paragraphs, headings, photos and concise wording.
I’m not the only bard in this neck of the Internet. Check out some gems that I didn’t Mark as Read before even getting to. In fact, I saved them to savor later. So, are they good? I don’t know. Let’s find out together:
Reading: still reading Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking chapter by chapter at the gym. Obviously I need to go to the gym more…Also pacing myself with My True Love Gave to Me
Eating: I made shepard’s pie from this recipe, and it was a HUGE hit
Listening: to this #redthumb commercial. I love this idea.
Praying: for relief from my anxiety and hope that it will happen
