We often wish we had some time, just some time to slow down and be quiet. To not rush, have a thousand things to do, what if we could just find the time? And now I have it. I am leisurely hanging out, reading, watching movies and writing. Fact is, this break between the old place and the new is a blessing.
This time has forced me to slow down, take a breath, appreciate and catch up. There is enjoying guilty pleasures like writing, catching up on reading blogs, doing exercises I don’t normally have time to do, cook a few favorite things and just enjoying the slow.
It is the Peace in the quiet. And it is delicious. For someone who is normally feel speed ahead, being in the slow lane is wonderful. Indeed it is the calm before the storm before moving and settling into the new place. That will be a bit of work, and excitement. A new chapter in my life and one I have been working toward for a long time…
But now it is time to relax and enjoy the Peace in the quiet. To rest before the next burst of energy comes. and so it goes. and I am happy.

My name is Lamar Mendiola from Houston, TX and I came upon your blog one day last week just because I was thinking how many other blogs or businesses on the internet had the name “Lamar”, because, well, I just love my name! So I found your blog, started reading and WOW, it felt as though you and I have had parallel lives in the past and present! I enjoy the wonderful quotes and your pensive thoughts that make me feel that I am not the only one who thinks the same things. My husband and I are also in a quiet transition until that storm hits, but I am also cherishing these quiet moments and “Me” time and feeling like I’m finally living the life I’ve always wanted. Even though I’m 54, it has been a long time coming. Okay, I’ll stop for now but I will definitely keep reading and commenting and hopefully my story will come out. To quote another blogger: “I know all the limbo, waiting and uncertainty will flourish beautifully…” 🙂 Thank you so much AdaLamar and God Bless you…
Thank you so much for reading and I am glad you enjoyed it. Yes, life sometimes is a series of transitions. I hope everything with your husband works out as you want it to.
And you have a great name! 😉
