I have found in the last couple of years that I am learning to enjoy the simple pleasures in life much more, I don’t take things for granted as I would have probably done in my teens and early twenties.
I enjoy time with my children and husband, walks, reading, tea, my garden, candles, flowers, baths, music and laughter.
I am learning to slow the pace in life and soak up every last second. I work full time and so my time at home seems even more precious to me. I am also learning to use my senses to the fullest, when outside I listen to every sound and one of my favourite pass times is to sit at the very bottom of my garden and listen to the birds singing in the trees. I touch, smell, taste better now. I would much rather have handmade or meaningful gifts gifted to me than lavish expensive tokens.
But above all else I am learning to live each day with a grateful heart.
