I know that I’ve been gone for awhile, and in the blogging world that can make or break sites, but hopefully I’m back! And what better way to begin this post then with one of my all-time favorite quotes.
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around for a while, you could miss it.” – Ferris Buellers Day Off
I wanted to share this quote, because I feel it accurately sums up why I’ve been away. Let me break it down for you like this…..
I can remember being a young, carefree girl, back in the early 90’s, just sitting in my living room and listening to the ever so wise Ferris Bueller utter these words on my television set. However, at that time, I never really thought twice about them. They were literally just words to me, and from my perspective, time couldn’t move fast enough. Maybe Ferris wanted to stop and look around for awhile, but all I wanted was to be more grown up, and honestly, I also wanted summertime to come around faster and more often. Don’t misunderstand what I’m saying though, of course I was having fun and enjoying life, but I definitely didn’t want time to slow down. (Maybe I was the only kid who felt this way, but I really doubt it.)
It wasn’t until I started to become older, and more grown up, that I realized Ferris Bueller was actually right. It honestly feels like time keeps speeding up, and the years are flying by faster and faster; especially now that I have Griffin. I can’t believe that he’s already 8 months old and so many people I know, don’t get to see him very often, if at all. If time really wants too, it’s fine, I totally give it permission to slow down, because before I know it, Griffin’s going to be one.
All of this is the reason why I decided to take some time off from posting. Motherhood has been an incredibly busy and trying time for me, and I’m learning and attempting to find daily balance as I go. So, in the words of the ever so wise Ferris Bueller, I wanted to stop and look around for awhile and take life in. Griffin’s only going to be little once, so I’ve been enjoying the time I’ve had, watching him grow. When you think about it, life’s pretty amazing and filled with thousands of “first times” that we completely forget about as we get older, until we can see it through the eyes of a child, and that’s what I’ve been doing.
