I've Been Thinking...

I can’t believe it’s already Thursday, where did this week go? I guess I’ve been busy since I haven’t had really had a chance to post since Monday. Not sure what I’ve been busy with, but the time has been flying by.

The weather here has started feeling like fall. The sun is still warm, but there is a coolness in the air that makes it just perfect to take afternoon walks. I’ve been leaving The Little Miss in school to nap her afternoon away which has given me a couple of hours to stroll around the neighborhood.

My mind wanders when I walk and in my mind have total freedom to dream. I’ve been dreaming big and feel like the next few years there’s going to be a shift in my life. Not sure where the antsy-ness of current situation is coming from, since I’m in a good groove but I feel like there is more in me than what I’ve been doing. I think if someone was going to write my story, they would have to include phrases like “untapped potential” or “never tried things she wanted” or even worse, “was too afraid to try.” I know in my Zen like thinking, even if I do take a leap, the landing will be soft where ever I find myself.

So, I’m thinking about my 5 year plan. I visualize what I want my life to look like in 5 years. I looks remarkably similar to what I have now, The Husband, The Little Miss, and me. But I’d love to live in a simpler place. I’d love to be able to set my schedule. I’d love to be able to create beautiful things. I’d love to grow garden flowers and pick produce from my own garden. I’d love to have more space around me to breathe deeply. I’d like to relax more.

Honesty to the life I want.

Simplicity.

I'm all for simplicity! Working on that myself these days. The simpler my life gets, the happier I am.

Picking your own produce (and preparing it) is a very happy thing! Go for it. It's OK to start small with oh, some lettuce in a pot.

'Course, the not so simple thing is toting all one's plants down the hill into the garage because a freeze is coming, LOL! The air here is feeling like WINTER today!

I know what you mean... I've also been kind of introspective lately. Sometimes we just need to slow down and assess our lives, don't we?

This is all I've been thinking about for the last couple of years. I told a friend of mine at lunch on Friday that I KNOW that will happen someday and I just need to believe that. With all this talent you and I have, how could it not?? :)
