take a break

Things have been a little busy - posting a new blog being at the bottom of my never ending to-do list. I'm currently reading a book titled "God Never Blinks" by Regina Brett. I'll save my thoughts on this book when I finish it but she talks about taking the time to enjoy life now instead of waiting until the proverbial "I'll be happy when ______." It's an important lesson. I don't want to be so focused on needing to accomplish things that I stop having fun. I don't want to be so busy that I'm letting life pass me by. The book is broken down in 50 life lessons Brett has learned over the last 53 years. Lesson 19 is "It's Never Too Late to Have a Happy Childhood. But the Second One Is Up to You and No One Else." She talks about doing things such as eating dessert first or playing on the swings - things to connect with the child that still reside in all of us. I like that philosophy. I can brag and say I already partake in such activities. Things like eating fruit snacks or using a Hello Kitty pen or carrying Scooby-Doo bandaids. We need to take a break from being a "grown-up" every now and then. To enjoy the simple things. To be a kid again.
