Everyday is a Gift
There are a lot of things I am not doing right now. It’s a conscious choice. When I get overwhelmed I start to shut down, and the only real way for me to prevent that is to shut down the things in my life that aren’t contributing to my overall happiness. I am still making stuff. I am done with facebook. I have been sewing everyday. I don’t always clear off the dining room table for dinner. I shower. I don’t blow dry my hair.
I’ve realized my favorite way to document the things I am eating is with a round plate/bowl. In a straight shot from above. Thank you Instagram for teaching me my favorite way to show you I ate a chocolate muffin for breakfast one day, and cake four days in a row.
I am eating a lot of good things. When I am stressed I like to make stuff. Particularly bake stuff. It happens, whatever. I am not eating enough vegetables (that one is not really conscious, it just happens sometimes). I am trying new things. I am spending time with my family. I am clearly not blogging about all those wonderful things I am doing or making. I am not reading many blogs either. I don’t watch the news. Or TV in general. I avoid politics and any place politics might be discussed like the plague. I am opening my windows because fall is awesome. I am suffering horribly from allergies. Which makes fall much less awesome and winter SO much more appealing.
I tried this PB+Honey+Banana milkshake today. It was amazing. I had two. I don’t feel bad about it. I am making lists and writing down goals and plans and projects. I am not sleeping well. I started to watercolor. I love it. I stopped worrying about my house being clean. I still do the laundry. I am not washing the tub. But I do clean the toilets. I am trying to appreciate the everyday. Because everyday is a gift. I’ll be back soon.
