I am thankful for some simplicity in my life. With so many choices and decisions, so many demands from people and things in my world, it’s a real challenge to ‘keep it simple’. Making it simple means making things easy and clear (which isn’t always easy). My magic wand (sometimes broken) to wave over my life is mostly planning and prioritizing. Make plans, long and short term and then priorities. Then I try to practice taking one thing at a time, so I can have one thought at a time, with some space before I have to have my next thought. I try not to get attached to my plans or priorities. I try to be flexible (easy) and yet focused (clear) and in this way I can teach myself to think simply and act simply. One thought at a time. At my own pace. In my own space. A simple life is a contented life. Simplicity is hard to come by somedays when you have a child. But I am trying to teach her the same.
I am thankful for cappuccino. This has been a great thing these past couple cold mornings. It’s been in the 20’s for a few days when it’s time to get up and going. I have my window in my bedroom open just a crack and boy can I even feel the coolness. But I love it too. I sleep so much better when it’s cool in my bedroom. Vanilla cappuccino is my favorite. But I bought this Caramel vanilla bean cappuccino….I think I am in love. ♥ Simple again. Just for me.
