My God I live a Simple Life! That realization hit me right between the eyes today.
I’m sitting here in my writing studio and listening to the birds. The rain has stopped and I’m thinking of going for a walk before lunch. Bev came home and I’m going to go in and visit with her before she leaves for her next store.
In other words, I have the freedom to enjoy nature, exercise and visit with loved ones during my work day….during my work day!
Gone are the days when I worked for someone else. Gone are the grumpy bosses and the impossible demands. Gone is the feeling of going nowhere in life and being burdened with lofty expectations and unrealistic goals.
I am back to basics and I have never been happier.
A friend of mine and fellow writer, Melanie, wrote about going for a walk on the beach the other day and having a WOW moment where she realized that she has great things ahead of her and huge creative projects that she wants to try. That’s how I feel today and most days.
I am relatively unknown and yet I am convinced that I will eventually find an outlet for my writing that will please me and lead to bigger things, whatever they may be. I am convinced that my words will help people and I will make a positive mark on the lives of others.
I love writing. I love the Simple Life. I love everything about the life I have created. I worked hard to be here, right now, celebrating all that is good about life. I deserve this moment….and so do you!
