What on Earth am I talking about? What's our great life altering experiment?
Where to start... it's actually pretty involved. But on Saturday night I gave a pretty passionate speech (if you will... Mr F never actually talks during our discussions) about the parts of our life we are letting slip past.
Not intentionally. In a sad sort of irony a lot of what we ARE doing is trying to hold onto where we are... but in so doing we are no longer living IN the moment.
And we're missing out... on a lot.
And in the process we're living with a lot more stress.
Completely unnecessary stress I might add. Self imposed, self created, stress... and chaos... and anxiety caused both by the combination of the two.
Is it possible that one small change (or large depending on how you look at it) could change all of that?
I think it is.
And surprisingly Mr F agrees (hey... I'm an excellent speech writer).
I want to be more PRESENT with the kids.
I want Mr F to be more PRESENT in our marriage.
Being in each other's presence isn't the same.
And it isn't enough.
