i have been doing alot of soul searching. i have been asking the question for so long. how can i slow down. how can i live a simpler life. the last four years for me have been a challenge. health problems and anxiety have been very present in my life.
a few weeks ago i made a decision. to give up my fast paced life. what does this mean? it means very little if any outside the home commitments. it means no more playgroups (i use to attend two a week). it means only going to a shopping centre once every few months. it means taking a break from sporting activities with my two older children til next year. it means time to breathe.
what i am gaining from this decision. oh so many things. time and space. to plan and cook nutritious family meals. time to craft and sew toys and clothes. so much more time just for me and my family. less time spent in the car. time to potter about the yard and garden. space to be present and gentle with myself.
to live a slow and gentle life.
i am finding the beauty in simplicity.
to live with more consciousness.
