i tucked all my "journals" away today
along with the self-help books
so many starts and stops; so much rambling and confusion
i think i need to go back to simple
gratitude, kindness and love
noticing moments and listening
taking note of the life around me with my camera
or not. . .
but taking time to notice, smile more and worry less
stop overthinking and trust my gut
and relax a bit more into my life. . .
the colors in the sky as the day started to unfold, his wagging tail, new music at the gym, a perfect avocado, digital check-outs from the library and how with one click they show up on my kindle, cilantro, dog walking along the river, fall colors and quiet. . .
