That’s all it takes. A moment. Take a deep deep breath and breath. May was a busy whirlwind of activity and June doesn’t seem to be slowing down. I run weekly. I’d like to say daily, but let’s be real here – I’m lazy and it rains ALOT in Seattle. Nevertheless, I get out about 2-3 times a week which is better than none. It’s not the 5 days a week I’m scheduled for though. I’m convinced that if I was able to follow through on the 5, I’d be in much better shape.
Lots has happened in the last few months though. I got DIVORCED finally and officially moved in with Justin. Two years ago, I could never imagined I would be feeling this way. Two years ago, it was all I could do to breath deeply, one breath at a time. But as many, many divorcees have discovered before me, Life does indeed go on and there is beauty in it. ?So many people have touched my life and made it better in the past two years. Not all of them were good experiences, but they were definitely ones I learned from. I’m still learning though. To breathe deeply, to live happily and in many instances – to just.let.go.
Find beauty in the things around you in things like pretty flowers,
Find beauty in those you love who do surprising things for you
Find joy in slowing down and playing with your pets as they discover their world
Find joy in good food – because without good food, what’s the point in eating?
and most importantly, remember to stop and say thank you to those around you for just being there.
