No matter how much I protest, summer is coming to an end. Normally by this time I am so ready for my kids to go back to school, craving our routine, and excited to have time to myself to work uninterrupted. But not this year. The difference is that I decided back in June to put my family first for the summer. Ambition was set aside and I had to say no to a lot. It made every moment with my boys that much sweeter, that much more enjoyable, and that much more meaningful. Here are some of my favorite moments:
When they go back to school and my house is quiet, I will choose to focus on my business and my work and my clients. And that will be sweeter too. I truly hope you enjoyed your summer. That you lived in the moment. That you took it all in. That you took deep breaths and really savored your time. That you chose to be present. Now bring on the rest of 2016.
