Stop and appreciate all the little things in your day. Whether its a good or a bad day, there is always something around you that is uplifting in all its simplicity....
A bird sitting out in my favorite tree My little guy smiling for no apparent reason The smell of my tropical shampoo Warm fuzzy socks The hum of the dishwasher after someone else stacked it My boys playing together, laughing about their made up stories Kisses on the nose A quiet moment
Stop and see all the little things and the big things don't seem so bad!
One of the good habits I am teaching myself this year is to just do what I can, even if I don't get it finished, its trying that counts! In just 15 mins I can make a difference in my housework, stress, friendships...etc so many things! Just commit to something small set aside 15mins and start it!
Its so less overwhelming, I have started working out again and am productive around the house. Who knew I could achieve so much in so little time. The small moments really can make a difference!!!
I am not about resolutions, in fact I kinda hate that word. Instead I decide a new mantra that I will live my life by and strive to be like. This year my mantra is.....
SIMPLICITY - Life is what "I" make it! - Tolivedeliberately
Keeping life simple! To live life with simplicity and full awareness of all that is going on around me. Notice my life and not just let it be on automatic pilot. Time goes to fast as it is and I want to stop and smell the roses and appreciate the simple things!
This year, Simplicity is my goal through making deliberate decisions, its about ownership, ownership of what I do and what I don't do, how I feel, how I effect others around me, ownership of the good and the bad. Knowing that my decisions are what make the difference in my life and those around me. If I am wanting life to be different in some way, it starts with my choices and my attitude. I can decide to make life as complicated or as simple as I like it.
I kind of see this as my own personal spiritual journey, to discover the true me and how I want to live life for the best! No more blaming others for how I feel or letting situations control my happiness, this year is going to be about deciding to balance my life and to prioritize what is important in life...Family, Friends....Simplicity!
