Everyday Life: Lately

I've been living outside of my head.


Doing things I normally don't do.

Eat a cinnamon roll for breakfast with a glass of hot steaming almond oolong.

Stay up past the boys' bedtime to enjoy extra giggling and inevitably tackling.

Pass up paid writing assignments to instead take a chance on creative endeavors.

Leave days of the week free of commitments so as to enjoy a spur-of-the-moment date with the littles and our friends.

And the less I live inside my mind, planning and scheduling and rationalizing and analyzing and scrunching and thinking thinking thinkingthinkingthinking until I've thunk myself out of any space at all ...

the more I find that I like our weeks.

Our days.

Our moments.

Lately, I think, I've been living inside the moments.

Instead of just {always, constantly, obssessively} thinking about them.
