Life in slow motion

A glimmer of hope.  A ray of light.
A glimmer of hope.
A ray of light.

Too often we take things in life for granted.

We dont stop to appreciate the simple things.

A ray of sunlight thru the clouds.

The sparkling stars at night.

A smile from a stranger.

We have only one life to live and we must take chances and live on the edge. Because in the end what do we have to show for ourselves?

Our diplomas?

Our certificates?


What do you have to show for? What are you proud of?

I know for myself I am proud that I have the ability to create things for myself, family and friends.

I appreciate homemade items.

I enjoy the simple things in life. Like when AC has a special type of creamer. Or a balmy 32 degree evening walk with my pooch. Enjoying a nice conversation with my step-son.

I am realizing that I need to slow down. Relax. Breathe. Take care of myself so that I can care for others. With my awful need to constantly clean I am able to pull back a tad and not worry about a dirty dish on the counter, or dirty socks under the coffee table. These are small things that shouldnt equal a big reaction.

Take time out each day and dedicate it to yourself. Take deep long breaths. Do what you love even if others dont approve because its your life. And be awesome!
