Do what? Like, how still?
Many of you may think I am talking to my children – but oh no… this blog is for me.
My husband walked in and looked at me and paused…. and our interaction went like this:
Me: I am just going to sit here for a minute and chill.
Him: WOW! Really? I don’t believe it
5 minutes later he came in and I was up doing stuff:
Him: I thought that you were going to chill….
Me: I did!
Him: That is what I thought…
Me (not out loud of course but in my head) Hmmmm….. Good point!
You see, I am a busy bee. I like to be on the move. I have a need to be on the move. I don’t sit still – ever really. And even when I am sitting still, I am not very still for very long.
Hailey does not take naps anymore… except today.
I text Aaron:
Me: Both girls are sleeping….
Him: Do you even know what to do? : )
What is the point of this blog post? Easy – to remind me to try and learn how to sit still. It is good for me. So, every day during the kids nap and quiet time, I sit still for at least 30 minutes. Crazy is what it is… I think I need a booster seat that I am strapped in to with a 30 minute timer so that I can’t move until it goes off – yah kinda weird…. but anyways, I have actually come to enjoy sitting – still even. I write. I email. I read the bible. Sometimes I sit for a moment and do nothing just listening to the sound of nothing (yah- that is a whole other blog post). But I just sit and let my “to do list” wait till I am done. Now – as the move gets closer someone check in to make sure I am still chillin for that 30 minutes a day. I need accountability so that the busy little bee in me keeps up with this good habit. I feel refreshed when I do. It is, well, just nice!
