Both liZ and I feel like we have been running ragged these last couple of months and with summer break beginning this next week I was trying to think about summer goals.
I was thinking about making calendars with an activity to do everyday or a summer “bucket list” or getting bins ready to keep everyone busy.
And then it hit me…..I don’t want to do any of those things this summer, I just want to slow down. Not that there is anything wrong with summer “bucket lists” or planning activities every day–if those are your thing—please, go for it! But I think this summer the one goal is—-to just SLOW DOWN. I know that sounds lame, but I really just want to stay home and let the kids play….and not be in the car for 2 hours a day driving everyone everywhere. I just want a summer to slow down.
I don’t exactly know what summer is going to look like but I am planning to go opposite of my normal-ocd self and just let go and let summer be. I think we all need it.
