When I was in elementary and middle school I wasnât very popular.Â It was my fault because I really didnât know how to just relax and be myself.Â So I ended up closing up and spending a lot of time alone, secretly wishing I could be with other people.Â By the time I reached high school I started coming out of my shell and making friends seemed easy.Â All those years being the âquiet kid in the cornerâ suddenly exploded by the time I reached college and I was a social butterfly.Â My goal was to be involved in as much as possible; I loved it and had the energy to maintain a huge social schedule.Â I remember my mom saying to me more than once, âSlow down and smell the roses.Â You do way to much.âÂ I knew with my entire being that she was crazy.Â I would never want to slow down.Â I wasnât like her; so I thought.
As an adult (okay, I donât really feel like one but according to everything Iâve heard I am now officially one) Â I still have the feeling that I want to be involved in as much as possible, but I donât have the energy. And lately all I want to do is go home after work and just relax inside my house, often times alone.Â If you would have asked me five years ago if I would ever think I would want to be home alone, not around my friends, not being involved in something, I would have said you are nuts!
The past five years Iâve been learning the word NO.Â Itâs a hard word to learn because often times I get myself involved in things that I just donât have the energy to do.Â But I donât want to disappoint anyone.Â Iâm learning though, that the only one I disappoint is myself.Â So Iâm taking it day by day.Â I still want to do everythingâ¦. but for today Iâm saying NO!
TODAY IâM GRATEFUL FOR summer.Â I LOVE this weather!Â It makes me smile.
TODAY IâM ATTRACTING more time to âsmell the roses.â
