You know how sometimes in life, things just hit you?
Well, not literally. I mean, at least I hope not literally.

I talk about actually living in the moment, being content slowing down to experience each day.
I talk about a lot of things and goodness, looking at just 3 of those things, all I can do is shake my head back and forth at my own hypocrisy. I’m terrible at just being content – I’m a perpetual perfectionist. I’m even worse at slowing down (ask any of the employees at Walmart). Continue reading
