I have a horrible habit of rushing through adventures just so that we can say "it's done! we did it!" For example, in December Eric and I were driving around with Mia to look at the Christmas lights. Mia wasn't very enthused (like we thought she would be) when Eric suggested going to a neighborhood on the other side of town. I instantly wanted to tell him no, let's just go home, it's close to Mia's bedtime, blah, blah, blah. For the first time I bit my tongue and let it play out since it was obvious that Eric was enjoying himself (and really, so was I! There was no point to rush!) We found some awesome lights and Mia totally perked up and got excited about them! That was such a small, simple outing with my family but I actually allowed myself to "enjoy the journey" Think of all the big things I've missed out on because of my rush to reach the "finish line", yikes! So this is my mantra for 2015... enjoy the journey!
