Life by Design
I was on my way to work this morning listening to the radio and people were calling in sharing recent experiences that sort of made them thankful. At least, that's what it appeared. I honestly wasn't listening too intently - I was busy having a conversation about the bumble bees and frogs on my toddler's blankies. (way more important)
But something one of the callers said caught my attention and it made me listen a little harder.
"You make my day go by faster."
I cringed when I heard it and I thought - that's what I do. Every day when I'm at work and my son is at school I try to figure out ways to make my day go by faster. I want it to end so that I can go pick him up and take him home and spend time with him. I'm wishing my life away.
And I'm in this sweet spot right now where I'm raising my baby and awaiting the arrival of Baby Girl and I should NOT be wishing any of this time away. I should be soaking it in, relishing it, and praying for it to slow down. Because the days may be long, but the years are short and already they are flying by too fast.
We are in this age when we don't have to be tied down to someone else's schedule, someone else's expectations, we can create a life by design and by golly, I'm going to do it. I never want to say again - "I hope this day passes quickly."
I'm in this place in my business where I've rewritten my life by design and I'm so excited to be able to do the things I want to do, when I want and how I want to do them. I want this for everyone.
