I used to be more of a morning person. Then I had children.
Children can really change you. I still love mornings, but they are not as quiet anymore.
(Growing up- hair combing was a major chore)
At the end of the day, when the work from the day winds down. You are left alone with your thoughts of what? Oh yeah, all the things you did not accomplish in the day. You reminisce not over the wonderful memories you made that day, but you instead think of all the mistakes you may have made that day.
(Happy faces when I spent time with them)
I find that the days get busy, email, phone calls, errands, school, cleaning, cooking etc. that I get so busy that I miss out on the things that matter the most.
When the house gets quiet, that is when I live in regret.
How can we live more so we can go to bed with a clear conscience?
What are ways that you combat the unrest you can feel when the busy times of the day have wind down?
If we can take the days and make the most of each moment, not allow ourselves to get dragged down in the daily routine of what must be done, and instead focus on the important things.
Take time to make memories that you won’t regret. If nothing else, they might save your kids the therapy bills they might have otherwise when they are older! = )
