Sometimes I Doodle

Life. Is. Busy.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember to slow down.

I’m realizing now, more than ever, that it’s okay to take a break from being busy.

It’s okay to take a moment to relax, to enjoy, to breathe.

It’s okay to take a moment to doodle and see what my mind has held captive.

It’s okay to try, and even better if I try without worrying about possible failures.

So today I gave myself permission to see what could be, to find out what actually exists in the world of possibilities.

I gave myself 5 minutes to forget responsibility, to forget editing, to forget laundry, to forget that I need to run to the bank…

Today I gave myself a reprieve from reality, found a Sharpie and let the ink flow…

Today I let myself doodle.


What would you do with a 5 minute reprieve today?

  1. You let yourself go and came up with an impressive doodle! Sometimes, we need to let ourselves breathe and not feel guilty about it. There is something to be said about “me” time!

    1. To breathe and not feel guilty, yes! Me time is definitely enjoyable, especially when it can be so rare. I think we all might feel a bit more content in life if we took a few moments to just breathe now and then.
