Just Be

There are different ways to go through life. One is to push through and make things happen, create your own opportunity and essentially need a lot of energy to move "mountains." And another is to just simply be. This means watching for opportunity as it presents, going along with others decisions and fitting in to a life that surrounds you. It is not until I sat back lately and simply just "am" that I understand the difference.  A sense of peace and tranquility arrived in me that was quite unexpected and very welcoming.

A New Coat of Paint

This past weekend we became weekend warriors once again. I painted the bathroom upstairs & Steven tackled our basement bathroom reno...almost done that basement!  I brought a pillow from our bedspread & asked the Paint Lady to match it up, which she did really well. Our bathroom is now a luxurious shade of gold./beige and looks like it belongs in a high end hotel. Each time I flick on the light I smile & absorb the beauty of the gorgeous color.
