Life doesn’t slow down. Every day there is an inexhaustible to-do list waiting for me. There are needs and questions pressing in–about homeschool, health, children’s needs, creative projects, this house, community, adventure, prayers and plans for the future… One thing I have learned in my life is that I have to create rhythms for myself that bring joy, peace, and tune me in to the beauty of everyday life. It is too easy to get swept up in the overwhelm and not enjoy the simple moments of day by day. January always makes me feel like making lists, reorganizing our family schedules, reevaluating the vision and rhythms of my days, weeks, months, and year. In this podcast episode, I share a few of the rhythms that help me, even in a busy, needs-never-stop-life, to feel centered and connected to the beauty the everyday.

I just finished listening to episode #22 at 5:30 am under piles of blankets during the snowstorm. It was delightful to spend these morning moments with you (and the babies). The end of your podcast had me laughing out loud. I’m so thankful you didn’t edit out this very real part of your life. It accentuated the message of your podcast even more.
I want to learn more about your journalling club. I want that rhythm back in my life – the one of sharing more creative space with you. I can’t help but wonder how many ideas have gone unbirthed just because we haven’t had time to be creative together. I’m ready to move things out of my life in order to make the space for this rhythm to be in my life. I don’t want the urgent things in life to squeeze out the important things.
I love you, Michelle! I’m glad you got a good laugh out of me trying to keep Rune quiet while I finished my last couple of sentences… Haha. I am so glad this inspires you. I will send you a message about The Journaling Circle. Looking forward to new rhythms for both of us.
