In keeping with my ongoing project to try not to cram so much into my life that I stop enjoying everything that's here--my "slowing down" philosophy--I liked this post by Julie Owsik Ackerman on "Giving Up Rushing for Lent." A sample: "Rushing only makes me less happy, and doesn’t get me there any faster."
in keeping with this, I spent the afternoon taking a walk around some
spring flowers, and attending an outdoor concert. I had a list of chores
I coulda-woulda-shoulda done. But the sun was shining and the flowers
were blooming, and this day comes only once. No regrets!
