Summertime and letting things go

Linking from friends' blogs, I found Jan at Creative Instigation. She posted something the other day that I really liked.

It's summertime, and the living should be easy. So, let it go. Let something go. Consider all the things on your "to do" list, and find a few that aren't really all that critical.

Then, reclaim summer. I spent an hour on Sunday sunbathing. Sure, I read a little bit while I was lounging. But, mostly, I just relaxed. Oddly enough, the world did not stop spinning when I stopped multi-tasking.

We all have time to relax. Let's take it.

Sometimes it seems we all get so caught up in daily life that we forget to take time to stop and smell the roses. I think I will try to take Jan's advice.

I am a strong advocate of letting things go. In fact, I refuse to make lists. If I can't remember it, then I don't need it or I don't need to do it. My endless summer!

Thanks Becky for the reminder of letting things go. We all need to do that more often.

I always liked that Mac Davis song about stopping to smell the roses.

Becky.... Thanks for the reminder of slowing down. Sometimes I forget, which is a little too often.

Hope your feeling better.(((HUGS)))
