Content.

I’ve been a bit of a blog-negelcter lately (is neglecter even a word? Anyway…), and I think it has something to do with this internal drive in me that has been slowing down a bit each day.

Slowing down to play more, to relax more, enjoy my husband and kids more, and maybe even to watch a few more episodes of Oprah (last month! Aughh!!). Basically, reminding myself that I don’t’ need to do it all-  and have it all done 10 minutes ago.  It’s ok to relax and not be doing something every second.

Did I just say that??   Me??

Yes.

And I never thought I would admit to this, but I think slowing down is helping me find contentment once again. After all, summer is just around the corner, and my baby girl will be out of school and back home with me. And I plan on savoring these last few years of carefree giggles, her baby-toothed smile, water fights, art projects and endless hours of playing in the pool and eating Otter Pops together. So if there was ever a time to learn how to back myself away from the computer, and turn off the “to-do” lists in my brain for a while ….. this would be it.

Wish me luck:)

Oh- and because I cant post without a picture, here is an image that just screams content. I want to be as comforted and as content as little little babe.  For real.
