So today finds me nearing the end of our “staycation”. This is not the vacation we originally planned. That one involved beach, sun, ocean and warm temperatures in a far away place. However, this one is good. That’s what I’m learning. (yes, you can learn on vacation.)
We just plain make things too complicated or hard. It doesn’t take spending lots of money or going far away to take a break, to have fun and get some rest. First we marked this week off on our calendar. That means no appointments. (We broke this rule once) Then we shut off the alarm clock. We made a list of things we’d like to do and we’ve been doing them. However, we are also spontaneously choosing to do things that come up as each day presents itself. After all how many times in January and early February in Iowa can you do this:
|Riding our Trikes|
|We played Cribbage by the fire on our patio in January! (I won!)|
Life is not easy but it does NOT have to be complicated. Attitude plays a huge part of it. We decided we are going to enjoy our time even though we are not on a beach. We are. It’s that simple. What are you complicating today? Will choose to simplify?
P.S. It’s supposed to rain and possibly change to snow later today. That’s okay. We have some indoor fun things to do that we didn’t do earlier in the week when we were outside. See how this works out!
