Looking for Inspiration? Head over to my Pinterest account where I have plenty of possible Peace Perspectives just waiting to be used. I have some already picked out for later in the year, but others, such as this week, I search and search for until I find exactly what I’m looking for.
What I like about this quote, is it really encompasses the things I value in life. Walking can be so simple, but if you add in a friend and maybe some pretty scenery I am in heaven. I love a hard workout, but I prefer those to be solitary. I’ll join a group now and then, but the likely hood of being the slowest, and having negative self talk is so high, that I’d rather walk in a group, and workout alone.
Reading has always been near and dear to me. I was a voracious reader as a kid. Especially in 3rd grade, I could read a couple Babysitter’s Club books in a weekend. I read almost the entire series.
Friends, especially have multiple groups of friends and struggling to see them all is something very real in my life. Part of the problem lies in living in Aitkin, of course I have friends who live in town, but I have the group of girls I grew up with, the group that I get together with now, and then the college friends, its so hard for all of us to get together that we tend to congregate in little groups, and of course as we all grow up our networks grow, there are coworkers and friends of friends, and I love being with all of them! A couple weeks ago I hoped to get together with blog friends while I was in the cities, of course they were all busy/out of town, and now I’m in the cities this weekend, but already have all of my time scheduled. Its somewhat of a problem, but a first world problem. I’m too busy to see each and every friend as often as I would like!
Instead of being frustrated by the shortness of time, I try to be thankful for the times I do get with friends. Also, I try to be present. Playing on my phone is pointless when I’m seeing people that I rarely get to see. But taking a group photo is a great way to commemorate the times we do spend together.
What do you wish you had more time for? How do you maximize your time?
