I did it over the course of 3 paychecks but I still made it happen and so can you.
My theory is that you can’t deplete yourself doing it or it’s no fun. There are so many ways to be smart about decorating.
It’s the little things….
A perfect cup of coffee
Your favorite candle burning
The smell of bacon cooking
Rain hitting the windows
And your kids sleeping safe in their beds….
If you want to eliminate fear out of your life, the simplest way to do so is talk to a kid. Kids have no fear to a degree and I guess that’s what gets them in trouble at times. But think of this, what do you have the greatest memories from and you more intense moments? Your childhood right? Think of all the careless, carefree things you did without hesitation when you were young? What kind of feelings did it give you then and what feeling does it give you now just thinking about it?
My kids do just that for me. Not only do they bring me back in time, but they say to me, mom stop worrying just do it. So little by little I am. Yesterday though I missed an opportunity of a life time. I had the chance to go with both my sons(13 and 14) on a flight lesson over Piseco Lake in NY. Why? Because I was afraid. That fear slighted me of something so amazing. How stupid can I be???
I guess I can’t beat myself up too much. Baby steps right? I fly high on the swings with them, I race on bicycles with them, we play manhunt at night, and we tell spooky stories by the fire. I’m getting those feelings back and I feel like I’m starting life all over again. What a feeling!!!
Swing high on that swing my friends. Go for that rush you once had when you were younger. You never know if you’ll get that opportunity again.
First and foremost, life is too short to not do the things you want to do in life. Even the simple things that make us happy shouldn’t be discounted like, resting, watching tv, writing, snuggling, listening to the rain, indulging in our favorite foods once in a while, taking a nap, letting the laundry go for a day or two, reading, and just thinking.
You’d be surprised how replenished you can feel just by doing those simple things that do not cost a cent.
Don’t feel guilty about living the life that you want and what makes you feel good.
