A Summer 2022 Slow-up

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it,” as cult-favorite Ferris Bueller wisely once said.

It’s time for a bit of a check-in.

I realize a big part of this all for me is to return to the things that once brought me joy — those that excited me, lit me up inside, and made me feel re-inspired and invigorated all over again.

I’ve found that it’s massively important to make time for yourself to fall back in love with the things that light you up — to nourish that plant, that seed — because just as easy as those feeling come, they can just as well be on their way and go.

“I hope we take a moment to celebrate all the things we do. Life can happen so fast.”
