Bailey is now off nursery for six weeks and I am really longing for some long summer days, where we have no plans and nowhere to be by a specific time. There’s something magical about starting the morning with a loose idea of what the day might hold, but having the freedom to see where the wind takes you. With no schedules and timescales there is a sense of space and abandonment which makes me breathe and relax into the day in a different way.
Something my mum has always said for as long as I can remember is… “if you are too busy doing, you have no time to just be”. Well since writing my summer of slow living, I have been taking more time to just ‘be’; and it has felt so good to find a slower rhythm, but it has also left me yearning for more.
I am therefore going to take a little blog break for a few weeks, and am going to have a complete break from social media for a bit too. As I type that sentence, I am a bit unnerved by the thought of not ‘instagramming’ for a whole week, but that alone is a good reason to force a break.
I am craving a shift of focus, and am sure I will return with fresh eyes.
