Can I Make an Observation?

I like to observe. It's one of my favourite things, and no, I don't believe that makes me a creeper.

I like to take notice of patterns, habits, tendencies and systems. I like to attempt to identify what changes I can make to something in order to get a better result. I enjoy watching, strategizing, planning and activating in learning.

That doesn't make me weird, it just makes me, me.

2016 has been an incredibly interesting year so far. I've had the opportunity of witnessing my youngest daughter continue to grow and morph before my eyes, all while learning to wait for and get to what this next longer term season looks like for our family. If you want to know what's up with us, take a look at this video:

I sometimes wonder if I am too busy to notice all that is happening around me. I've heard people say that you need to "stop and smell the roses" from time to time, and well, those people are right.

Being busy gets in the way from actually being productive.

A flurry of activity doesn't always equal greater results. I can finally say that I'm learning to stop, listen, create and learn so that I can move forward.

Maybe it's time for you to make the same observation?
