Hello to learning to focus on the good in life.
As someone who feels life deeply
I have come to realize we get more in life
of what we think of most.
So much of our life can be affected
how we choose to see it.
One of the gifts of aging is
all of life is made up of peaks and valleys
happiness many times is an intentional act.
There are daily decisions to be made
on the good and beautiful.
I have long known I have a predisposition
to worry and anxiety
but I know now letting that be the driving force
of how I see my world
can suck the joy right out of life.
So I have over the last few years
to focus on the beauty and the good in my life …
now I see and have so much more beauty
in my world.
I have soul connecting times
riding in nature
stumbling along the most beautiful sights.
I am ever so grateful to do this with friends.
My heart is so grateful to also hike with friends
in such majestic areas of nature.
At this time in my life
my heart is full of love and gratitude
for great friendships
which add such a beautiful depth to life
make traveling life's peaks and valleys
a grand adventure.
My soul is always
for the privilege of being here.
it's always where I feel closest to God.
The sheer beauty that abounds.
I am ever so grateful that
I can integrate the beauty of our natural environment
into my home decor.
Sprinkling a little int the backyard …
I have brought it into my candle arrangement
that I light every morning with my coffee
I am grateful I have slowed down my life enough
to make health and nutrition a priority.
I am grateful for the time in the garden.
Trimming for me is a lot like sculpting
to find the most beauty.
One of my favorite recent moments was
sitting in my backyard
during a gentle rain
reveling in the gift from above.
I have found joy this week
even in tidying and cleaning my house.
Being grateful all the while
for the joy of it all.
I have been stopped in my tracks this week
marveling in the beauty of the sun filtering in ...
just highlighting magnificently the beauty in
a single bloom.
This is all not to say my life is perfect …
I have learned
focusing on the beauty in life
gives me the courage
to continue on the journey
to the next peak.
Life takes courage and conviction
to make the very most of it all.
makes the travel
all the more beautiful.
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
