It's almost here. You know what I'm talking about -- that time when most of us begin rushing around with lists so long and expectations (in our head!) so high that we forget to take in all that the end of a year brings. From family gatherings to office parties to increased traffic to everyone trying to find that perfect gift for their canine friend. It's about to be that crazy time!
So before the madness starts, let's enjoy this space to just slow down, be still and take in some of the simple pleasures that happen every single day.
One of my favorite things that forces me to slow down is staying home and cooking something new. Being in the kitchen makes me happy and brings back the vision of being alongside my mother baking something when I was a child. Seriously, the best memories ever.
Another favorite activity is time out to just be present. Time out in our house means everyone is just hanging out. No agenda, no timers, no iPhone alerts. It's a great time to take a warm bath, doodle about new product ideas or enjoy a short nap with my little guy.
So here's to slowing down to your own speed. Be good to yourself. You deserve it. The list will still be there waiting for you, but for now -- be present, enjoy every moment and let yourself be free to explore what makes you happy!
