Today’s guest post is from Laura at orgjunkie.com. Summer is in full swing here in Nashville and with it comes the pressure to do, do, do; keep busy, busy, busy; take advantage of the slower schedule by cramming it full of camps and lessons for the kids, more training for your work, adding on side jobs and taking more on your plate, always going somewhere so you don’t feel lazy or judged by other people who are habitually always on the go no matter what time of year it is.
Laura wrote a post of reflection after her daughter headed off to college and I thought it might be a timely post, especially for those at home parents with school age children in the midst of summer vacation; those pining away for the day they send their kids (of any age) off to school again so they can have some peace and quiet.
If you need a reminder of what’s important in life, then take just a minute or 2 to read Laura’s post, “Slow Down and Enjoy the Journey“. Don’t let the rest of the summer rush by without enjoying each day and the people in it.
