{Soul Searching}

Over the weekend I did some soul searching {as I mentioned on Friday}. I used minimal technology, hardly watched TV, brought out my sketch book...used it, and really took the time to think about me and what I want. I think it's oddly more acceptable to complain about the trivial things that bother you than it is to take note of special little moments throughout the day. This weekend I decided to focus on what I'm grateful about, what I'm good at, what I'm most passionate about, and what makes me smile. I thought for my post today that I would share {for starters} what makes me happy:

1. When I walk through the door, my Addison jumping up and down with excitement to see me
2. When my favorite song is playing on the radio as soon as I start the car
3. When I realize I can relax because I have absolutely nowhere to be
4. When I climb under covers that have been freshly washed
5. When the lights first dim at the beginning of a movie
6. When I hear a compliment and allow myself to believe and receive it
7. When I walk into Anthropologie and smell their delicious candles burning
8. When I sit down to create, get lost in the moment and marvel at what God created through me

So as I continue on my journey and life plan, I vow that when times get frustrating, busy, overwhelming {as I know they will} to remember the things that make me happy...and smile!

Enjoy your day Peeps {and thanks for listening...}!!!

PS. Don't you love the light bulb above? I found it over at Design*Sponge! If you would like instructions for how to make one for you or your here.

  1. I love this...sometimes list like this put things in perspective. Its appreciating the simple things in life that we tend to forget or take for granted.
