Where On Earth Did February Go?

February is the shortest month – even with an extra day this year…but boy did it seem to really fly by this time! It’s like I blinked and February was gone. I can hardly believe tomorrow is March already!

We have so much on our plates right now – it can be really easy to just get lost in it all – in the fog of the many tasks I have to do. But I’m trying really hard not to get lost. I’m trying really  hard to be present in each moment – and to take it moment by moment. Of course I need to look at the big picture – and planning ahead is good (and I love it) but I also need to remind myself even amongst the craziness there is still time to reflect. Time to be still and time to breathe. The time is there – I just need to make the most of it.

So with another month behind us again, I look ahead to March, knowing it will be very busy, but also knowing there will still be enough time to pause every now and then. There will be enough time because I will make time. I will be intentional about getting quiet sometimes, reflecting, soaking in the little moments with my boys.

Everyone is busy. Sometimes it’s like we even turn it into a competition – who’s busier than who? We can complain (which believe me, I do sometimes) or we can embrace it. The fact it – I’m busy (for the most part) with things I love. I need to be grateful for this. And some of my busy-ness is self created – I need to take responsibility for this. I need to know my boundaries – but more than that – I need to stick to them. Let my yes be yes and my no be no – and be OK with that! I’m such a big work in progress. But I’m getting there.

So bring it on March! I will have 3 extra days than I did this month – so I’m already off to great start 😉

Hoping you have a great start to another month – a new chance to be all that you can be, to reach new goals, to build new relationships, to take time to breathe.

Here we go!

PS. The words of this song are sticking with my since yesterday in Church….Especially that  second verse…

Hide me now
Under Your wings
Cover me
Within Your mighty hand

When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with You above the storm
Father you are King over the flood
I will be still, know You are God

Find rest my soul
In Christ alone
Know His power
In quietness and trust

Your life is a time to immerse yourself in every single thing possible. Be selfish with your time, and all aspects of you. Tinker with shit, pack light && travel far. Explore, love a little, smile a lot, && never, ever touch the ground. It's not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself & to make your happiness a priority. It's necessary!
