Simple Things: Simple is as simple does

These last few weeks, I've totally leaned on the simple things in life to hold my shoulders up, to hold my head up and to lift my Being. When I think of some of the simple things that have cascaded my Being (essence), I smile. I smile because not only do the simple things help me to look for more simple things, but the simple measures remind me of how wonderfully blessed my life is.

Simplicity is medicine for healing and it is our source of staying in the present moment and the present moment is our power! After recognizing that I've recognized a simple thing like making it to the gas station on a hope and a prayer, I feel joy and I feel secure in all that I am! I simply love life.

I simply love the scent of my husband.

I simply love and enjoy the smile of my daughter...

the voice of my husband

the joking of my step-son

the smell of raw greens in my blender

the completion of a yoga class

a good downpour of rain

the chirping of birds while sitting on my front porch

the excitement of a compliment

the words, "You have been accepted to graduate school"

the love...

the peace...

the joy...

the excitement of just Being!

Simple is as simple does and I create and thrive for simplicity. Let's continue to be grateful that we do have the simple things to be grateful for because afterall, this appreciation helps us to blossom through the complex things!

Sending love and joy with simplicity!

Christina at Soul Aperture asked us to participate in acknowledging the simple things on this Wednesday and I'm happy to share on this simple path to enjoyment!
