slow down everyone, you're moving too fast

Last night, a good guy friend of mine made an unsettling remark about my hectic schedule. His observation was this, "You don't have time for a boyfriend." Hmmm. Stop. Pause. Reflect.

Do I have time for a boyfriend? If there were an amazing guy interested in me right now, could it even happen? And aside from that, am I just too busy in general?

Let's look back over my last week, starting with Sunday...

Sunday 02/20/11~ Church at 11:30am followed by lunch at my sister's; decorated at the church for Big Switch; met up with my friend Kelly

Monday 02/21/11~ Work from 8-5; did a quick photo shoot during my 12-1 lunch break; picked up Kylie, the girl I mentor, and got a pedicure that evening

Tuesday 02/22/11~ Work from 8-5, minus a two hour break from 11-1 to volunteer up at the church like every Tuesday; went and got feathers put in my hair after work; straight from there to the Thunder game; from the Thunder game to drop my over-heating car off at my dad's for him to fix {thanks, dad!}

Wednesday 02/23/11~ Work from 8-3:45, lunch with my friend Deidra from 12-1; went straight from work to the church for Big Switch {my church's youth program} activities; got to ride in a limo with some cool kids, then was at the church for Big Switch from about 6:30 to 9, then took my Switch girls home

Thursday 02/24/11~ Work from 8-5; meeting at 5:30 for a cool new community thing called Merge; my LifeGroup {Bible study group} at 7:30

Friday 02/25/11~ Work from 8-5; taking a class at my church tonight that goes from 6:30-9:30

My weekend schedule is equally as full as this week has been. Honestly, I love my life and most of the time I love being this busy. I am not complaining. But the comment last night by my friend did stick in my head. I never want to be so busy that I don't leave room for things that are important to me.

So, today, this Jack Johnson song is on my mind, especially these lines:
Slow down everyone
You're moving too fast
Frames can't catch you when
You're moving like that


  1. I love your love for Jack, he is the absolute BEST!His lyrics are so right too :)

  2. Based on your schedule it looks like Jesus and James Harden will become extremely jealous of your future boyfriend. ;)
