What will your future self remember about this moment?
I love this post! I'm back to work after a short holiday and find myself getting pulled into a vortex of 'tick box' tasks. I want to resist! Or at least trying to find a little perspective. To linger over my afternoon walks instead of rushing back to my laptop. To remember the new buds on the trees, the crows that visit the windowsill, and my ability to stop work early to enjoy a cup of tea and your wonderful words.
The cup, by the way, is chipped and probably not long for this world. I wonder where I'll be when its finally time to part ways? Thank you for such thought-provoking words!
Thank you Kate! Aah the tick-box tasks, yes😩 I'm returning to those now too, but trying to sweep them into a sense of easiness and find something inspiring about them (however small!) so that they don't seem quite as mundane. The attempts we make to romanticise! Ahh yes these things🥺 Oh I wonder! A chipped cup, Beauty and the Beast style🌹 Thank you for reading, and for your equally thought-provoking comment✨
Ahhh, I think about this stuff ALL the time. Such a lovely piece of writing.
What a thoughtful post!!! I love those little poignant moments, usually found in the ordinary everyday of life, when all of a sudden we are overwhelmed by a sense of the way time passes. They always become such magical memories for me
Right now, I’m sitting in a hotel room with a red fuzzy blanket on my lap, listening to the sound of traffic and planes. An hour ago, it was snowing. Now it’s overcast. It’s a moment of calm after rushing around the past week, packing up house. I’m sure I’ll remember this because next week, I’ll be in a place I’ve never been before. I know there’s so many memories ahead!
