“Time flies when you’re having fun.” and while it’s been a year and a half, it seems like just yesterday that I disassembled and packed up my classroom for the very last time. I traded my long, daily mundane routines of academia and weekends that passed far too quickly for time to release, relax, and reflect.
By changing my routine, I’ve slowed down to make my days more meaningful by creating unique experiences for each one. I engage in greater mindfulness and focus on savoring each moment of my daily activities, as well as holidays. Not that I don’t plan and look forward to the future, the adage of “live for the moment” is my key to slowing down the quickly passing years.
