FEELING SERENE

I'm working hard on renewing my serenity. As my father used to say, life is tedious sometimes, and if we aren't aware, we can let the tediousness of life take over.

This morning, as I sipped my cup of tea, I took time to look out my window and see the beautiful pink and yellow sky that heralded a wonderful day ahead. 


I knew I had another very busy day ahead, yesterday I painted in my new booth all day and today I am moving, but I also knew I needed to feed my soul before the day really got started. 

Life passes by so quickly and before we know it we have wasted so many precious moments. Moments that should be filled with love and peace. 

So instead of rushing around, I am consciously taking time to feel serene, to savor the moment, and to love the life I have.

  1. I had to go back and read your last post, which I missed somehow....I couldn't understand why you were moving when you just moved into your new apartment!! Ha ha, silly me - good luck with the new booth location - you have some great stuff there!!

    1. Rereading what I wrote I can see how that could be confusing. In my defense, I was really tired when I wrote this and also Blogger erased half of my post. :)

  2. Great post! Mine is somewhat along these same lines today. We have to fine peace and serenity wherever we are and embrace life. For now is all any of us are awarded.

    1. I haven't had a chance to read any blogs yet today, Brenda. We do need to be mindful of our serenity. It affects both our mental and physical well being.

  4. That is so true, Laura. Sometimes it is hard to just take that moment to savor a quiet bit of time. It seems even at this age there is a constant rush on to 'get'er done'. That is something I was not prepared for. I thought this time of life would be a lot more laid back and quiet. The joke is on me! lol xo Diana

Missed your last post so went back and re-read. WoooooHoooooo!!! I love lil booths like this so much. If I was closer, I can tell ya I'd have already bought that set of blue dishes....swoon....!!! Love them. And the red glasses with crystal bottoms?? Love them too. I say YES to you opening shop on your blog. I'll definitely be a shopper!

  11. I'm glad you are finding some serenity amidst your painting and moving your booth, etc. It seems like since I've been "retired"... life has been even more busy and sometimes stressful, which I do NOT like. Working at a job was stressful.. I thought being retired would be peaceful and calm. Some days it is, and I try to cherish those days!

  13. Laura, just suggestions what about making bird feeder with vintage cup and saucer for your shop.Excellent gift for someone who got everything. Lots of instructions on the Internet.

  14. This post speaks to where I am in life right now as well. I think there is a collective conciousness of unease right now - with the election and so much going on in the world. Taking the time to see beyond all of that and remember to savor the moments is so important.

  15. It is great that you have the ability to enjoy such an amazing day. However, the working moments should also be remembered. The professional writers custome writing can help you with this.
