Embracing Simplicity... I give thanks!

Thursday, January 20, 2011

'Tis a gift to be simple,
'Tis a gift to be free,
'Tis a gift to come down
Where we ought to be
And when we find ourselves
In the place that's right
'Twill be in the valley
Of love and delight.
~ Nineteenth-Century Shaker Hymn

Do the laundry... check the mail...grocery store...dishes. I don't know what your life looks like but sometimes I feel like my life is just one big to do list. I long for quiet peaceful days where everything flows smoothly and I don't feel rushed. I am slowly learning that it is my outlook on life that will help me achieve this. There is enough time in the day to get things done and what I don't get done today CAN wait for tomorrow. There is enough time every day to spend time appreciating me.

I am amazing! I am raising two beautiful children, I have spent 12 years in a turbulant relationship (that I wouldn't change for anything), I have an amazing family, I am surrounded by loving friends... The things I treasure most in my life are the simple things. Today I give thanks for all the things that have helped in creating me :) Today I give thanks for all the new and wonderful choices I am making now to make the outter me match the inner me :)

    Right on! My life seems like a constant crazy to do list that I never have the time to finish everything - But we need to slow down and appreciate the things we have.
