I was a bully who pushed and pressured and hurried a small child who simply wanted to enjoy life.
My eyes were opened; I saw with clarity the damage my hurried existence was doing to both of my children.
Although my voice trembled, I looked into my small child’s eyes and said, “I am so sorry I have been making you hurry. I love that you take your time, and I want to be more like you.””

I’d like to repurpose finally. I want to see if I can step off the consumption treadmill and set my own pace. I want to finally lose track of time and finally forget what’s on my to-do list. Maybe I’ll finally ask, “Are you doing okay?” and one day, finally write a novel.
In the meantime, I hope to be fully present in the here and now. Finally.”
