Manage episode 357500930 series 3002897
We had another incredible 3 day weekend with grandkids and kids last weekend and even though the weekend ended up being very cold, we still had plenty of quality time spent together. It just amazes me how fast all the kids grow and I am so glad they all have a good time playing together! I am so so grateful for all the time we are all able to spend together.
This got me thinking about winter here. I don’t know where you live, but in MN, we have 4 very different seasons and there is something I love about each one of them! I sometimes wish winter was shorter, but it wasn’t too bad here this year with the really freezing temps, so that was nice. I enjoy the snow, but I like to be able to go out and enjoy snow shoeing, ice skating, ice fishing and all the winter activities we can do, so the -50 below with windchill really doesn’t appeal to me!
Some of the things people in colder climates don’t talk about when they have more time indoors are cozy time by the fire watching movies, game nights with friends, being able to do more puzzles, quality time together baking and warming up the house, more time for reading, crafting and indoor hobbies as well as all the outdoor hobbies when it is nice that I talked about earlier. None of these things take much money, but will give you a lifetime of memories.
Are you someone that looks at the positive things around you? When you start living a simpler life with less, you really do find more joy. You will end up really appreciating the little things in life, and notice how wonderful it is to be living a slower life with more time. What are you waiting for? Are you tired of the crazy busy life that sucks the life out of you? There is so much more for you friend! I want you to know there is so much freedom when you let go of having to keep up with other people and when you let go of possessions, you will feel so much lighter and alot happier!
I know people that are always scrambling to get the next best thing and then once they have that, they need more and more because they think that is going to make them feel better. That may only make you feel better temporarily, but when you simplify, you have more time which you can never get back, you can focus on other people, and not just yourself, and you will be so satisfied!
I challenge you to look at how you are feeling and what your focus is and see if there are things you can simplify or downsize so you can live your life happier with less stress.
