Rush

Our tendency to always be busy is just so American. I can't criticize this because it pays the bills, but it seems that when I'm not working, I'm still somehow working.
Right now I only work a part-time digital media job, but when I'm not doing that I'm babysitting, blogging or helping out at home. I make free time to go on walks (often with the kids I babysit), read a book or occasionally go out with my friends, but lately I feel like I'm always in a rush.

In fact, yesterday I didn't give myself enough time between jobs, and as I sat panicky waiting at a red light, I realized stressing out is not going to get me to my destination any faster. And guess what, it doesn't matter. I can't help that I'm running late, and the lives of the people it's effecting will go on. I got to the house 20 minutes late, and she was so relaxed telling me not to worry about it (I had texted letting her know). Life is something worth enjoying, so why are we often in big rushes?

  8. So true what you said! We often take too much time stressing about being late or about work or anything else that we don't even take the time to appreciate life as we should.
    Nice photos!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  10. I know exactly what you mean, but that's great that you took a moment to pause, and realize that stressing out wouldn't do anything. Anyways, this white dress looks gorgeous on you :)

    1. I know plenty of people who fight the rushes in their lives, and they actually seem to be much better off. I absolutely believe we can change it within our own lives. Sounds like a good future project! Challenge accepted.
