It’s been two weeks since I last crafted a post for the Five Minute Friday link-up. The past two weeks have been a whirlwind, so it is really only fitting that today’s prompt is Rush. I try to join in every week with the link-up where writers all over the world free write for five minutes on the same prompt. I love linking up and reading the unique posts that come from the same inspiration. So here is my post:
Three weeks ago we stepped off the plane and have been rushing around ever since!
The long, relaxing trip to England cut us all off from the overloaded schedules and chores back home. There were no meetings, practices, or expectations while we stayed with my in-laws. There was only taking life slowly and enjoying the time we shared with people we love.
It’s been three weeks, but something about the lifestyle we lead while overseas appeals so greatly that I miss it already. It’s caused me to question certain aspects of my life back home. I’ll leave you with some of the questions I’ve been wrestling with lately…
Why do we fill up so much of our time?
Living rushed is the American way, but is it really a healthy lifestyle?
In creating full schedules are we remembering to pencil-in time for ourselves?
In the midst of all the rushing are we taking time to notice all the miracles, blessings, and beauty around us?
