Being a beach body – I can’t complain about the weather so far this winter. Although I wasn’t wearing my swimsuit, I had the opportunity to get outside today and go for a hike. It was amazing – refreshing and so good for the soul. Climbing through the woods and taking everything in, I realized how amazing the simple things are. In true Rachel fashion – I tripped over a log and ended up finding a cool fossil. Talk about perfecting timing to not pick up my feet :). Hoping many of you had a moment to get outside and take in the sunshine.
I was able to spend my first night in my new house last night. It was amazing to sleep in my own place – in my own bed and just feel somewhat settled. It has been a crazy few years (remodeling the apartment – trying to find the new me…) and this is one piece that is now falling into place. Waking up – looking out my window and seeing the bluffs – not hearing renters above me and knowing I get to do this again and again – AMAZING!
On a search to simplify life and find peace in every area – I realized, I often stress myself out trying to accomplish 100 things in a day (I’m sure many of you are the same way.) So this year – I set a new years resolution (not something I typically do for I feel you should always be trying to better your life). This year – I will set one goal per day. I choose one task I want to accomplish for the day and then whatever else gets done is extra. So – far it has brought me peace.
Before I sign off and leave you for the week, I must say – although all these things have brought me peace – the words “I’m sorry” meant the most to me this weekend and brought peace my way. All I can say is thank you.
Signing off and hoping all of you have peace this week.
Love - Rach
