Before I start a post I usually know what I want to talk about. Quite a few times I change the topic before I begin typing. I guess I feel a change in priority with the message I need to deliver.
Why have I chosen the topic of simplicity? Well I guess thoughts brought me here. Today I’ve been thinking about relationships, patterns, changes, perspective and just life in general. I’m currently striving so hard to make mine and my family’s life more comfortable. Things are far from perfect but we’re good.
In the grand scheme of things I’m abundantly blessed. In between striving I always make the effort to notice the little and simple things. The fact I have hot water to bathe with, a warm home, food, clothes, family, friends, employment and the list goes on, it makes me grateful. When I have a hot drink in the morning it makes me glad. When my children tell me they love me it’s huge. When I have a productive day at work it’s rewarding. When friends check in on me it’s pleasing. There is a great deal to be grateful for and I’m grateful I’m reminded of this everyday. I think the biggest and simplest thing important to me is when someone shows me love. I’ve blossomed so much because of love. As I’ve gotten older the good sentiments of people has meant so much to me. A stranger saying hello to me still catches me off guard at times but makes me feel special. That second of kindness can truly make a day great.
So I guess what I’m trying to say is remember the simple things. A slice of toast, a new jumper, a sunny day, a snowflake, a new book, a chat with someone, a new idea, a realisation, a chance, a breakthrough; whatever it is, however small or big, be glad, be in the moment and say thank you.
The simple things mean a lot.
If you don’t already, give saying ‘thank you’ to simplicity a go. You never know what it could do for you.
Much love and more vibes.xx
