One thing I will admit, I'm a workaholic! Even when I'm not "working" I still have so many things that I want to accomplish so I rarely slow down. I've never been the "sit on the couch for hours, vegging" person. If I'm sitting on the couch, I'm working on Something. But with the changes that phone call made, I've been trying to slow down a little.
A few weeks ago, I was working around the house.. It was quite cool in the house, but since I had been busy I didn't really mind.
The dogs were all lying on the couch under the blankets and I decided to sit down for a few minutes and have some hot chocolate. I sat down next to the boys and I snuggled up under the blankets. I put my hands on either side of the mug and had the thought of how nice it is to have a hot mug to warm my cool hands on..
It was another one of those moments when things begin to change. It was like I had just discovered something. I realized that it was one of the little things in life that I had neglected to enjoy.
It was at that moment that I started to think about slowing down enough to start enjoying the little things in life that make life enjoyable. I had spent too many years not paying attention to those little things.
It was at that moment that the idea to start this blog came to me.. I'm sure I'm not the only person out there that was just too busy to slow down and start enjoying the moments that make up a happy life.
It was at that moment that this new journey began.
