We’re heading in to week three of this month’s Slow Home Experiment, where we’ve committed to spend time each day writing in a family journal.
As we’re currently in Canada on holiday, it’s turned into somewhat of a travel journal, but today Ben talks about why he feels like it’s actually taking him out of living in the present moment while we’re travelling. To be honest, I found this confronting because it wasn’t at all what we expected when we took on this experiment, but it does bring to light the issue of how to BE present and then how to look back on a day and focus on a moment with clarity.
Turns out this experiment is asking more of us than we expected!
As I mentioned last week there are a couple of challenges I continue to struggle with, but both myself and the kids are also starting to benefit from the perspective that comes with the process.
