Lake Time - SOLC #9
Clocks did not dictate the way we led our lives during this girls' weekend. When we woke up in the morning, that was time to read our books, drink coffee, and take in the views. When we were hungry, that was meal time. When the sun was shining so gorgeously, that was walking along the beach time to explore and look for sea glass. When it started to cloud up, that was starting Downton Abbey marathon time. An arbitrary time between our lunch dining and our dinner dining meant it was cocktails/appetizers time. When we got tired, that was bed time. And every minute of the day was conversation time and friend time.
I'm realistic enough to know that every day can't be like that. But this weekend made me realize I need to slow down to stop and smell those proverbial roses when I have the opportunity. I spend far too much time letting carefully delineated "to do" lists dictate my life. My goal is to learn to ignore those lists when I can and enjoy the life that is right there in front of me.
Thanks to Ruth and Stacey for hosting us again for the Slice of Life Challenge. Head on over there to find out what other "slicers" have to say each and every day.
