“We need to get back to just CALLING and talking! No more texting.”

It’s amazing how many Godwinks I get. You may call them coincidences but I know better.
Out of the blue, a good friend of ours Louise (who I quoted
Yesterday, I made an effort to slow down. Get some things off my plate. This blog might be one of them in the future. I don’t know. As I was tweaking my new Shopify Store, I got a call from Jack, who was at the car dealer, having regular maintenance done on his car. They needed to keep it longer than they thought, Madison needed to use the rental car provided, so could I come pick he and the grand dog up and take them home? It was perfect timing! I needed a break from my work and a purpose. It was a Godwink. So off I went. And it was awesome.
I ended up taking Madison and Connor on my car and Jack took the rental. We went back to their place where Jack met us and we had such a nice visit. I don’t do that enough. Just take time to visit. Those two have their heads on straight. They have such wisdom for their ages. We just talked. The three of us. We’re all so busy, we haven’t done that forever. Just visited. It was wonderful! Just listening to their viewpoint on things was amazing and refreshed my soul.
Next stop? To hula hooping where it just felt great to move and the music was fun and exhilarating! My favorites-the 70s and early 80s. We were moving fast and that’s where it’s meant to be fast. I was even 15 minutes early, so I sat in the car for a few minutes, caught up on a few texts and went in. Still ten minutes early.
Then on to pick up a scout order from my friend Lauren. I haven’t seen her or her family for a long time. It was wonderful too! I miss them and she promises me that she’ll slow down.
Slow down today, but try to be prepared so that you aren’t in a hurry. I’m trying to be 15 minutes early for everything from now on, per Joyce’s suggestion. It will take some doing. I’m going to try to call people more and not text as much, per Louise. I’m going to get out more and do something for others, per Madison and Jack. And I’ll get my website up and going so it will work for me, not the other way, per Jay!

In the meantime, do something you’ve never done before. Find your passion and explore it. Every single day is a gift, slow down and enjoy it! I’m off to tend my passion.
Have a blessed day!
