iNotice a lot of things.
And write about how they help or hinder us. Five daily blogs. Each one a different theme. Each one a critical component to balance.
Like the fact that we race to get started in the morning. We race to get to work. We race to do our work. Then we race home to do the evening routine.
We plan on slowing down and rearranging our priorities at some point.
We forget that we are in charge and need to create the “some point”.
Someday is not a day of the week, nor a future date on our calendar. Someday is a lie.
But we are too busy to notice.

Long ago, someone noticed a spring surrounded by large groves.
Maybe even a bit ridiculous.
Really, we’re going to name the town Spring Grove?
Some things just seem obvious, and yet, they also seem ridiculous.
Akin to ‘the only constant is change’.
Not banking on (and investing heavily in) change is the prerequisite for a midlife crisis.
Knowing this now, we can confidently move forward planning for everything to change.
