Is there a connection between our capacity to love & the speed at which we’re travelling?

I’m on a bit of a space and productivity quest.

Space for fun and laughter and, well, sometimes just space to breathe, because life feels very busy right now and I’m not sure I’m convinced about how very wonderful that is.

And productivity because, if less really is more, I’d love to find that balance, the sweet spot.

After two days thinking about love (well, a whole weekend of it really but only the last two days showed up here in the daily dose) and realising yesterday that there is a real, solid correlation between our capacity to love and the speed at which we’re travelling, finding that sweet spot feels more important than ever.

I’m done with being the grumpy, stressy one.

I’m done with multi-tasking so I can squeeze more busy into the day.

I’m done with getting by.

I’m ready to really step up and enjoy each new day.

I’m ready to show my children, by example, what it looks like to smile at the sun rise and really thrive.

And if that sounds just a little more poetic than usual, you can totally blame a new writing app I’m playing with. I’m listening to gentle music as I write and it’s setting a beautiful scene 🙂

What might your today look like if you really believed it were possible to thrive, every day?

What would you differently?

What would you allow yourself to make time for?

Today, I dare you to do all that stuff anyway, even if you don’t believe how thriving is actually possible yet.

As Christians we talk a lot about how to follow Christ means to take up your cross. To accept struggles and persecution. To be people who know what it is to hurt.

But Jesus also talked about his yoke being light. He promised rest and refreshment. He told us not to worry.

What might life look like if we took him at his word? Embraced those promises and really stepped into them and owned them?

You won’t know unless you try so go on, I dare you 😉
