Recently I posted a picture of myself in my kitchen, and I immediately started receiving generous messages from people wanting to help me “update” it. Along with their messages came pictures of how my kitchen could look, if I’d just put some effort and money into it. I’ve always loved my kitchen, but after seeing those pictures I found myself looking at it through new, critical eyes.
Speaking of gratitude…I recently stumbled across this blog post. Beautiful perspective and a powerful reminder of how lucky we are to have so many of the things that we take for granted!
a lovely evening with my love watching an outdoor performance of Oklahoma
a strong body and mind
the memories that I have made with all of the people whose lives have been intertwined with mine at some point in my life
the peace of this moment
a horizon that holds new possibilities
the sounds of an approaching thunderstorm, a cool breeze, and the smell of blueberry crumb bars baking.
beginning new routines. This morning, coffee made at home and a green smoothie for breakfast. Also, I have kale in my teeth.
