"The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
What hidden stresses do you have?
Sometimes I am surprised by what I find is taking it's toll on me. I recently realized a few things that I thought I enjoyed had actually become very hard for me to handle. But it didn't make any sense because I know that each one also brings me happiness. So I decided to stop worrying about them and take a break. Guess what? It worked. Not only did I not miss them as much as I thought I would, I could also enjoy them more when I approached them from a new perspective. These activities are things I can choose to do when I want, as much as I want. The invisible "thems" and "theys" that I thought I needed to appease didn't exist; or at least "they" have been silent on the matter.
We've just been playing around here lately. It's so hot outside and I know how wimpy that sounds, but I don't care. It's not even refreshing to go to the pool because the water is warm. Like a bath. Ick. So we hang around the house reading, writing, doing puzzles, playing games, and watching t.v. Occasionally I clean something or exercise.
I wrote down some happy moments we've had over the few days, but that's all I've got for now. The fan is making a lovely whirling noise and I've found the perfect spot to feel the breeze. It's lulling me to sleep.
At night: cool breeze, fresh air, and buzzing insects.
