Some of the things that we have in life, we won’t have forever, in fact many things. Life is ever-changing and the people and things currently in our lives may not be there in the future, but somehow we learn to adapt.
I recently had a close friend that I have mainly lost touch with. Nothing happened between us, just contact had become one-sided. I would always reach out to my friend, yet this friend would hardly reach out to me. Time changes, people change, we come to realize a lot as time passes and we must accept and/or adapt to whatever is thrown at us, no matter if we do not like it.
This goes back to a blog post that I wrote a while back mentioning how not everyone is meant to stay in your life, some come to teach us lessons, or come in a time of need. This individual and and I are still friends, however our friendship has changed so much and we don’t talk as often, still when we do there is a lot of love for each other, but it’s not the same. Have peace in your heart knowing that things happen as they should and that people meant to stay close to you will never astray.
Fall is my absolute favorite season and it’s almost here! I am reminded of the beautiful leaves that change, the cool crisp air, the stillness that takes place before winter hits, the fall festivities and holidays, it’s just a magical time of year just like winter.
This morning was very crisp and I got up and put on some heavy clothing and fuzzy socks and I was in Heaven! There is such comfort found in being wrapped up and cozy, such a feeling of bliss to relax and feel warm. I love to curl up in a blanket with a hot cup of tea, or coffee. After a long hot summer, the cooler temperatures are always welcome and after the cold of winter we will be longing for the warm summer days again. What is your favorite season and what do you enjoy about it!?
We tend to seek out and desire what is familiar and safe to us. Of course an adventure, or spontaneity is nice every now and then, but for most of us, we are fond of the safe and familiar.
What keeps us tied to the safe and the known? Maybe it’s our love of things that make us feel whole, loved, comforted, maybe it’s fear of the unknown. Whatever it may be, take time to enjoy the familiar things in life, they will lift your spirits especially during the times we live in now. Surround yourself with people and places that feel like home!
With so many responsibilities in life, I’m sure that many of us have a to-do list, planner, journal, calendar, etc. It helps us keep track of what’s to come and helps keep us organized and on top of things. I never really used to make a to-do list except for college, I always relied on my memory to remember what I needed to do, but these days with so much going on and a brain that doesn’t remember like it used to, I need a calendar and a to-do list!
I actually enjoy crossing off things that are completed off of my list, it gives me a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. There is something so satisfying about crossing out something that you once had to do! It gives you motivation to keep going and to get things done. Being organized definitely makes life a lot easier and less forgetting makes life less stressful! I wish you all a beautiful week, as always thank you for reading.
How could something so small bring us so much joy? Yet, the simple and little things in life are what sometimes makes us the happiest. The smell of pumpkin pie reminding us of the holidays, the snow falling down, the sun on our face, a dessert, a sweet message from a friend, the little things in life bring us so much happiness.
My mom was making her delicious chocolate chip cookies the other day and I enjoyed every bit of them with a cold glass of milk. Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite dessert ever, so simple, yet so delicious and amazing. I was thinking to myself how something as small as a cookie could bring so much joy and be such a pick-me-up. Often the little things in life are attached to memories, which makes them even more special. What is your favorite dessert? What are some of your favorite simple pleasures!?
