Fall decor and Halloween Candy already in shops and It’s only August 1st. Why do we feel the need to rush our time forward? Do we really need to think about Halloween and Fall now? Yes, I know it’s a marketing ploy to spend more money, but we need to feel peace and pay attention to where we are now. Be in this moment, this day, without wondering what costume to buy. Lets just stop and smell the ocean air mingled with sunscreen and cotton candy, the freshly mowed lawns and garden flowers on this beautiful Summer day.
Can’t seem to come out of this fog. I feel like I could sleep an eternity but having slept so much yesterday and last night I really don’t want to miss out on daytime and all that it brings. Light, warmth, bird sings, doing small chores trying to write, draw and read. Anything to feel like I’m living. This tiredness is like a heavy blanket that covers me. I can’t shrug it off. All I want to do is bury myself in it. For now though I’ll just be. On my screen in porch with the birds and morning light.
I breathe it in..
to know I am ok.
I am enough.
Peacefulness replaces anxiety.
If only for this moment.

Indeed it does.. so many perfect moments..
this is what I try to hold on to.

Happy Friday all.. it’s been quite a week but I’m sitting on the porch,
sipping coffee and listening to the birds
while the smell of the woods and flowers surround me..
