"We all go a little mad sometimes"

And you thought I was just doing my thing, quoting a movie. Well yeah, it's from Psycho. Norman Bates scared the hell out of me, I don't know about you.
But seriously, don't we all go a little mad sometimes? Crazy, fast paces we walk, oftentimes RUN, lives filled so full we sometimes don't know what the date is. Appointments and plans and phone calls and working and driving to this place and that place and ..and....and....
Don't let that pace run you down. I feel that sometimes. Then I get that stop.the.world.it's.spinning feeling and I know it's time to take a breath or three and have extreme quiet. Me time. I know people that can't put their foot on the break, even have trouble coasting for a while. Everyone is unique, we're all made differently, thank God or this would be a very boring world.
I'm always in awe of people that tell me they don't require eight hours of sleep, how is this possible? Won't that eventually catch up with them? is what I'm thinking, but not usually out loud.
Now don't get me wrong, I love being on the go at times. I love plans being made at the last second that seem to just fall into place right when they're supposed to.
Oh but the slowing down. I love that too. I have no problem waking up in the morning on the weekend and keeping it quiet for hours, bringing the day in with my thoughts, peacefully. Sometimes I read before I even get up, really like doing that.
There are also days that I wake up with the need for music, and conversation, right away. You wouldn't believe how fast I can clean this house when I'm singing, I'm just sayin. If the sun is shining and the windows are open, it's on.

Tomorrow is Saturday, remember that running around I just mentioned? It's one of those kinds of Saturdays, where you pencil in the parts of your to-do list that you don't have time for during the week.

But it's SATURDAY. I scheduled fun too, it's necessary!

I hope your weekend goes exactly how you want it to.
Much love,
Tiffany

PS Definitely Cafe Brazil for breakfast. The coffee, oohhh the coffee, amazing. Not to mention the food. I'll see you there!

Thanks for the affirmation/confirmation Tiff! I started my week off by expressing that we need to slow down & appreciate all facets of life...to enjoy it immensely! I must say I did-- today I took the time to relax & refuel....I feel AMAZING:-)!

Sleep is overated, right? You know it does catch up to you eventually, and it's oh so nice to slow down now and then, take a breath and just look around at all that we are missing. Life goes by too fast, and we all should take some time off and just take it all in. Great post tiffany!

It is definitely a good thing to slow down and take things in, the smallest of things we don't even realize we're missing because we're too busy.

Well, we THINK we're too busy. =) Thanks Doug, anxiously awaiting your next "My thoughts"
