I crave simplicity in my life.
Last night we had a simple night starting with bedtime jammies at 5:00 pm
We said no to everyone and everything that came our way.
We stayed inside pretending it was cold, rainy, and cloudy.
I made soup, salad and ordered pizza. We rented red boxes for the kids, and movies for Mom and Dad.
We all stayed up way too late being cozy, and a with no outside distractions.
IT FELT AMAZING
I LOVE SIMPLE NIGHTS.
Last night I was reminded that I need to have more of them.
The older I get the more valuable I realize simplicity is. We live in a noisy chaotic world, with mixed messages everywhere we turn. There is always something more in this life.....always a faster way to do things.
It is ok to say no to things, people, and activities. It is ok to be simple.
It takes courage, wisdom and strength to do small and simple things.
I need to have more courage!
