SITTING BY THE WINDOW

It is what I consider a perfect day today. Temperatures are in the 60s and the sun is shining in a beautiful blue sky. 


I know that the next three days are going to be cool and rainy so I am trying to get out and run errands today. Then I will be able to spend those days snug in my apartment sorting through things and getting organized. 


Thank you for your comments on my post on Monday. If you missed it you can catch up here. It made me realize how much I have been missing the friendships and support I receive from my blog. I have not been able to build these kind of relationships on any other platform.


This is the time of year when I feel most optimistic, and so it has bothered me that life has been wearing me down. I am not ready to feel old, to give up on life, or to sit back and let life continue to pass me by.


I don't know about you, but I am ready to get out and smell the roses more. I have been wanting to take a trip to Canada and visit where I grew up for quite some time, so next week I am going to apply for a passport. No more putting it off. I am not sure why I haven't made this a priority for myself. 


As I sit by my open window today and listens to the sounds of people and nature I feel inspired to move forward.

  1. Out my window today everything is windy and cold! Today is a day I don't mind being indoors, but I'll still be happier when I can get out in my garden again!

  7. You should follow your heart. Get your passport and go back "home" for a visit and maybe it will help you decide what comes next. We should strive to enjoy each day we have and live life to the fullest! Take care. xx Cheryl

  10. Hi Laura. So glad you are taking action and planning something for you that you've been wanting to do for a long time. That is great news! If we don't take care of ourselves, who is going to do it? Take care and keep us posted. Susan
