Busy Seasons Of Life
Sometimes we go from the busy school year to the even busier summer that is a little disjointed in the schedule, right?
We long for the lessening of the rigidity of the schedule of the school year, but then when we move into the freedom of the summer, it gets filled with lots of activities, and that also seems busy.
So if it feels like life just won’t slow down and you’re waiting for something to change I want to share a little story with you.
You know those moments and conversations that unexpectedly change your perspective and make you reconsider the way you look at life?
The Seasons Of Life And Motherhood
Travel back in time with me for a moment.
When my now ten year old was still in diapers. We had just finished a Mommy and me music class.
I was on my hands and knees, helping her slip her sandals back onto her sweet little feet, knowing that it was futile because her shoes would somehow find their way off her feet before the car ride home was over.
Maybe you can relate?
But the conversation that was happening as all of the moms gathered their belongings and ushered their kids out the door, was one that changed the way I looked at motherhood.
One of the mothers, laughingly said, “One day things will slow down and get easier.”
And the music teacher, who had homeschooled all of her children and was now a grandmother said, “I wish that that was true, but things never really slow down.”
And those words made me think, and they stuck with me.
I could have taken those words to mean that life would always be hard and just let myself feel discouraged and hopeless. But they ended up having the opposite effect.
Intentionally Slowing Down The Season Of Life You’re In
As time went on, I began to realize that life would always be filled with activities and to dos. But I could still create space to nurture myself in little and big ways no matter what the season looked like.
The music teacher was right, life will always keep moving.
There will always be more things to do.
Even though the world around me seems to be moving at breakneck speed, my inner world can be a safe haven for myself and my children.
Even though it feels like there is a lot of busyness and interaction and yet connection seems to be lacking, I can start by connecting with myself.
So that I can connect with others from the depth of my being.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by life and always hoping that the next chapter will be less busy, I invite you to instead find that sense of slow and ease within yourself.
Instead of looking to the outside world.
And from that place of inner connectedness, you can bring that quality of slow living, ease, peace, and joy into your outer world and into your interactions and everything that you do.
