I was pondering a facebook status to write, like you do – and this is what I thought…
“When what you’re most excited about is a snugly blanket, waiting for your Love to get home with some homemade soup from your sister in-law – you realise you must be getting old! But then also how nice it is!”
How life changes! We’re always rushing around, working to ‘get there’ – with ‘there’ being the dream, the destination! We often get too caught up in to-do lists and work loads, the deadlines, never ending things to get on top of – and then you’re tired and enjoying the quieter moments of life.
Now, I often thought over the last year that this was a bad thing. I’d hit my thirties and so clearly just getting old! When actually if you hit pause for a minute and really think about it – it feels great! To feel settled, feels nice. It’s drama free and has a peacefulness to it and right now I’m going to enjoy that!
Sometime’s we are already ‘there’ and we need to stop be too busy or fretful or miss it.
That’s why I’m loving things that involve Mindfulness, the whole Hygge ethos and living life listening to what feels good instead of the ‘shoulds and musts’ we can get too bogged down in. Perhaps my affinity for these things is why I’m enjoying life in a different way too?
I’ll share some of things I’ve been enjoying on the blog this year and on our Instagram too!
