Sunday Feel Good #3 – Take Time to Invest in the Moments
Taking the time to invest in the moments. Sounds easy right! But for me (and hopefully at least one other person out there so I don’t feel like a fool) it is really not so easy most of the time. I live my life in a state of almost constant running. Running to get things done and check them off the to do list that will really never get completed. Running to pick up and drop off kids, and run errands, and try to keep up with the housework, and church callings, and teaching piano, and PTA responsibilities. Plus I want to be a good wife, mom, daughter and friend. Whoa!! That is a lot and it makes it hard for me who likes to do everything well to really get ANYTHING done at all! Much less to get it done well .
Can anyone relate? I often load too much on my plate and the people that suffer from that are the people I love most. My family and closest friends. They get me in my full on stressed and harried state of being. I am sorry to them and I vow to do better. I love this video I am sharing today for Sunday Feel Good not only because it is the sweetest wedding proposal you have ever seen and it will totally make you cry. But because it reminds me ( and I have watched it like 14 times) how wonderful it can be to invest in the moments. The big moments (like the one in the video) and the small everyday moments. That stopping and taking the time and investing ourselves in the moment, show our loved ones how much we really and truly love and cherish them.
I don’t want my kids to remember me always hurrying them from place to place, or pushing them and their wants aside so I could get other things done. I want them to remember me as always having time for them. I want them to remember that I used my time as a mom to make moments loving and fun and sometimes magical.
I hope you enjoy this video, I love it. And I hope it encourages you, like it did me, to be a little better. To step up and show the people in our lives that we love them enough to take the time and show them.
