I added two words to this photo..... "simplify life"
Basically, because this is what I've been thinking about today.
view out my window right now... I HEART this!
to simplify life, it requires us to let go of some of our obsessions!
I'm speaking to myself here...
I will confess, that I am obsessed with making sure that EVERYONE around me is comfortable and happy!
I'm obsessed with making sure our home is comfy, cozy and decorated in a way that makes my heart happy.
I'm obsessed with daily routines. I'm obsessed with being on time!!!
I'm obsessed with wanting everything to be perfect!!!
that's a funny one isn't it? We all know that things are not perfect.
However, I have reached a point in my life where the need for all these things seems to be on the back burner for me.
Is this an age thing? Where we finally grow up and start to take life day by day.....stride by stride.
Perhaps it is Contentment!!
Being content where I am in life.....being content with my being. OR....is it realizing that I can't make things perfect.
I can't choose the happiness of others....I can not secure that in anyone but myself.
I can remember a time....not too long ago, when I could...sometimes would, go to town every single day. I would spend hours shopping, looking, running errands...etc. etc.
Just yesterday....I was in the big city, and I had several things that I wanted to do. Not that I had to do them....I just wanted to.
I found myself saying...."that is really not important, I think I'll just go home!"
I literally talked myself out of going to Walmart, Target, to get a pedicure and eating lunch in town. Wow..I can't believe it!!
My life really is simple....I just think I'm ready to simplify it a little more....
Happy Day to all of you!
