Arrival

Posted by on Aug 2, 2017 in Life Strategy!, Thoughts | 0 comments

I feel like I haven’t had a moment, as if every minute of every day for the past few months was frantic, or stressful. And it wasn’t true–I had plenty of spare moments, but I spent them watching Reign. Pretty dresses and absurd plots can do a lot to allay stress and anxiety–or at least distract from it.

But now that I’ve completed that stage of my life–the moving stage–I feel like I have so many moments, even though I’m actually much busier than I was. I am up at 6 or 7 to start work, either working in the yard or on the house or running various errands or dealing with new house-related disasters (more on those later) through the afternoon, throwing together a dinner, and then pretty much falling dead asleep before starting it all over again.

 

But in between all of that, I have moment after moment, when I pause and listen to the birds, to the wind in the ironwood trees, to the distant moo or neigh coming from our neighbor’s pasture. When I close my eyes to feel the sun on my face, and when I look, almost in disbelief, at the beauty and peacefulness that surrounds me every moment of the day.

I live here. 

 

I wake up every morning excited to start my day (ok, maybe not at 6…), to get to work, to build, to create. I am grateful for my sore muscles and the blisters on my hands. I feel blessed and so incredibly happy.
