Bubble Wrap JedOver the past 6 months, I’ve burned the candle at both ends. Working twelve hour days on multiple projects and jumping from New York to Denver to Vegas, I was caught up in a whirlwind of exciting new experiences I thought mattered most.

At the same time, a rash of people I loved passed on. People I care about deeply are grieving – deeply. I witnessed a fantastic celebration of marriage and, while on the dance floor, I fell even more in love with my husband. People I love dearly are loving – dearly. It was time to drop the projects long enough to partake in this one wild, beautiful and mysterious life, for better and worse.

I recently watched a TEDTalk called “Keep Going Until We Stop” by Scott Stratten. It rang crystal clear. Do yourself a favor. Watch.

It’s time to stop, to be there, to spend time, and to appreciate the smallest gems in life – like these cats spend time finding 37 ways to love bubble wrap. Take note and, most of all, enjoy!
