Where did the days go?

The last entry I wrote was in August. That’s almost 6 months ago. For yet another time I let “busyness” hijack my plans. Although, was I really busy? Or maybe the right question is was I busy with what was important to me?

I know I got things done at work. I know I was serving my community. I was present at school activities of my children. I lobbied for issues on social media. Yet somehow, I still feel I didn’t get the important things done. 

What are the important things? When I think about it, it’s building relationships and “wasting time” with people who are important to me like my aging parents, my husband, my daughters. It’s being mindful when I read emails and being present in the moment when I write my response. It’s setting aside time for myself, to take care of myself and get fit, read books, take up a hobby. 

You know those three books I posted a picture of in my last post. They remain unread. 

Maybe I’ll start with that.
