I've been thinking a lot about perspective over the past few days because I had cause to say "...but I've only got 5 children" in conversation with someone who has 9 children.
I regularly need to grab these opportunities to reflect on the big picture; to count my blessings and not just busy myself with the next few hours. It's lovely to be so consumed but it's not good for me without these little rest stops every now and again.

So here's to living an examined life and to finding the time to do it.
