Everywhere I look, there’s something to revel in.
My husband’s smile, my daughter’s piano strains, my son’s giggles.
My puppy’s wrinkles, a sunrise, fresh cut grass.
Life is so sweet, so full, and so promising, but we can only taste so much of it.
And sometimes I worry that while I’m immersed in my busy, I’m missing out on what I value most.
I know I’m not alone in this.
We’re all in this together juggling our loves and our work and our selves.
And when the busy starts to become too big and too overwhelming to manage, that last one is what we tend to set aside first.
But I’ve figured out the secret to creating more me time.
It’s simple and sweet and comes from advice I was gifted on my wedding day.
And 11 years later I can confidently say that it’s simplicity, is what makes it so do-able.
The secret to having more me time is this: Say yes more often than no.
Yes to working out, yes to a new book, yes to a play date at the park.
Yes to a cocktail, yes to a dance, yes to an irresistibly smooth LINDOR truffle.
Sometimes we have to turn our backs on what we really want and that’s okay, of course it is.
But more often than not? We should dive into yes.
Because when we do, we’ll find the nooks and crannies of our days filled with the very best that life has to offer – like these smiles, these hand holds, and these irresistibly smooth new Lindt LINDOR caramel truffles.
