Day 24: Time to Pump the Brakes-#SOL17

With the hustle and bustle of life, I often feel like it's putting pedal to the metal....go, go, go....and wherever you go, you go FAST! Phew! Between work and home, it can be hard to slow down with so much always going on in our household.

However, every now and then, it's important to take the time to pump the brakes and slllloooooowwww life down to catch your breath, rest, and recharge.  I'll be looking forward to easing off that accelerator for the next two weeks to enjoy spring break (yes, I said two weeks-thank you balanced calendar).  I love where I work and I love what I do, yet I also love being able to spend time and make memories with my precious family without the constraints of time and getting from one place to the next.

My colleagues have a range of plans from just enjoying a staycation to an adult-only trip for the first time in years.  We will be heading toward some sunshine and warmth here in a few days, and I admit, we can't wait!!

Regardless of destination, it's about allowing yourself time to just stop and enjoy the moments.  As Ferris Bueller would say, "Life moves pretty fast.  If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

Happy spring break!! 


  1. Two weeks?! Color me jealous! My spring break is almost finished, and I'm proud to say that I did NO school work! You're so right...it's important to rest sometimes.

  2. Two weeks? While I'm jealous, with snow days, we are well into June to begin with, so I was happy with a week!

    I love that Ferris Bueller quote as well, and did just that during my own spring break! :)

    Enjoy and recharge!

  3. Great analogy of pumping the breaks. It's so easy to forget to stop and look around. Have a great time, can't wait to hear about your trip.
