The Plain and Simple Truth

This is me a quiet, contemplative mood, listening for my TRUTH. What is my Truthteller trying to tell me?

I know I have so many things on my TO-DO list.
I know I have said YES to way to many things.
But they are all good things.
But still I am feeling a bit tired...a bit overwhelmed.

When I get like this I know what it is I must do to feel back on be able to breathe a little easier again....

I make lists.
I plug everything into my calendar and plan, plan, plan!
I make sure I take time for me.
I enjoy little, treats throughout my day.
I listen to Pandora.
And I keep plenty of water with lemon by my side.
My head is just clearer with lots of ice water....

I am dreaming of warm weather, sunny skies and no wind today...

Me and my fave flip flops

Today is gonna be okay.....after all....

See my ice water?

"The best things are nearest: breath in
your nostrils, light in your eyes,
flowers at your feet, duties at your
hand, the path of God just before
you. Then do not grasp at the stars,
but do life's plain, common work as 
it comes, certain that daily duties
and daily bread are the sweetest
things of life."

   -Robert Louis Stevenson

What are some ways you can make your life a little more enjoyable today?


  1. Wonderful post!!
    I too am at a cross road right now - I know you just finished your 31 days - and I just finished the book illustrations and the House of Art so as of TODAY, I am freer than I have been in a while. And I have a month until the next big thing - the adoption process (and a series of 11 weeks of classes) begins. I need to get my lists going too (makes me feel organized) and today is for cleaning . . . that will make me feel better, xoxoxo

  2. BTW, love your new background ;) xo
