week in review

I have heard many a time that the days + weeks + years seem to pass more quickly the older one gets, and this week was definitive proof of that belief. I briefly recall waking on Monday morning and now, here it is, Saturday. Where did the last 120 hours go? *sigh*

The creation of this list and reflection on the past week are always an enjoyable time for me. However, in times of extreme busyness, the essentialness of setting aside time to force a slowdown, to contemplate on the past seven days and appreciate the time and events that occurred — good, bad or indifferent — has become crucial to my sanity. This downtime also serves as an excellent (and much-needed) reminder to the importance of enjoying each day +  moment — taking regular pauses to allow myself to appreciate what is and breathe.

Starskee and Hutch may have come in last in our skeeball league, but we had fun doing it (despite what this photo may depict).
