1. I don’t need so much crap. I’m definitely not a hoarder, in fact I cant stand clutter. BUT, spending a few days away with only the basics that were in our cottage and what I packed, made me realize that I don’t need so much crap.
2. I deserve to relax and reflect- everyday! I found that on vacation I was able to breath deeper and think clearer because I allowed my self to relax. Amidst my deep thoughts I had an epiphany: I deserve this peace. Everyday is a gift.
3. I need to get my butt out of bed and get dressed in the morning (have a routine). While on vacation, I was excited to get dressed every morning to go and do and explore. There is no reason not to do this on a daily basis to start my day off right. A daily vacation mindset of excitement and opportunity will allow me to cherish every moment and keep my spirits up.
4. Less Internet and TV=more memories. Wifi was very scarce in the tiny town in which we took our vacation. It was hard to get used to. I picked up my phone 100 times a day to check email, pin, and read blogs that I follow. My daughter asked me in mornings to “watch a show”. Instead of indulging in wifi capabilities, we explored the town, talked to people, and played games. This can be our normal, right where we live.
I am delighted to be starting my own blog! I have been inspired daily by other Moms who blog, and have finally gained the courage to start my own. Thank you for stopping by. Look forward to ideas and inspirations about making, saving, and stretching that dollar; crafts to do with kiddos and for yourself; Pinterest project trial and errors; and probably some Momma stream of consciousness. Come back soon!
