Grumpy People (Me)

Yesterday, I made a “ninja move” as described by one of my friends: I went to another part of town completely and totally alone.

(I attribute this ninja skill to our recent viewings of Kung Fu Panda, but moving on…)

I made a pit stop to indulge in a little coffee delight at one of my favorite hot spots. Wow.

What focused, isolated, rushed, grumpy [people] mirrors were everywhere.

Having been completely removed from this professional cosmopolitan for the past two weeks, I was sort of disgusted by the scene—and it certainly made me think about how I handle myself when I’m back in it all.

Everything was so fast and loud and…impersonal. Perhaps it wouldn’t be too horrible to look up from my phone, smile at the person next to me, even let someone move ahead in line…

Sometimes it’s priceless to be able to take a step back—to reevaluate, reprioritize, and rethink.

So until next month, here’s to slow days, long naps, forgetting my phone exists, yoga pants, baby snuggles, and figure skating with my girls—the best way to begin this beautiful new season.
