I have really been trying to follow through with my new mantra of 'simplify' however, lol, some days it's just not that easy! 😁
I would love it if there was just a few more hours in the day. I have had to start a notebook just to store my many thoughts and plans which, come to think about it, I probably should have begun long ago!
I will say though that I am incredibly grateful 💓 that I have an endless supply of dreams to keep me busy, most likely for many lifetimes. 💡💡💡
Depending on our family's schedule, which is super busy with 2 teens and a 9-year old, I try to work in day trips and outings to break up the busyness. Doing this not only allows me to have that sacred family time but also helps to replenish my soul and clear my mind. If I can, I love to be close to the water, definitely my first choice.
When I can't get away, casual strolls with our pugalier, Pepper, can be just as enjoyable. When we first brought her home and started to establish a walking routine, I noticed that every time I went out, I would come back more relaxed than I was when I had left the house. Our walks quickly turned into down time, not only for Pepper but for me too!
I love how simple everything is when I'm present in the moment. It's not about yesterday or what might happen tomorrow but just here right now. One step and one day at a time. That I can manage. 😊😊😊
