It is that time of year where everything gets cray busy. Between work, friends, decorating, shopping, planning tips, catching up, and everyday business, it is hard to cach your breath. Add to that the craziness that has been getting ready for the closing, doing voice work, dealing with crazy family drama and moving things up from point A to point B…and Life has been going at break neck speed. I need to double my vitamins just to keep up.
I am very much looking forward to the day when things slow down. When I can breath and when all of everything is handled. But even in the most hectic of times, we must take a breath and let go. I have been praying that it all comes together and works out, letting God work His magic through my life. After you have done everything you can do, it is what ever it will be.
And isn’t that the case with life? We cannot force it, and if we do, things usually end up worse how they started. Maybe we try to force it because we are afraid of it not working out the way we envisioned. Or maybe we, as humans, are just stubborn to give up control.
When this week has been overwhelming, I go to where all the heirlooms are in my house. Those wonderful things that have been passed down to me. And I am instantly at peace with the world. I am not a materialist person, but these items, cherished my my parents, are now cherished by me. There is comfort and belonging with them.
Yes, in this busy time, we can all take a moment to observe what gives us peace, purpose and fulfillment. Because on the busiest or hardest of days, that is what will get us through. And now, all before this chapter is closed and other is spectacularly opened, I cherish those quiet seconds, as I am comfortable with my place in this world.
