Its been a week and a half since my Simple Abundance journey started. Thus far, for me, the messages I'm picking up from the daily readings are carpe diem and gratitude. Am I living each day? Living in the here and now? What makes me happy?
I've been well aware for a long time that I have difficulty living in the here and now. Living with regrets of past situations, living with anxiety and "what if's" of possible future events. But I also know that since I found a creative outlet with polymer clay, I've been living much more in the here and now. More, I think, than I ever have before in my life. What makes me happy? Being creative. What helps me to live each day? Being creative. What keeps me focused and centered? Being creative.
I feel like I've found one of the answers to life's great questions. And I am eternally grateful. I thought I might have more to share after the first 10 days, but I find that this is where I'm at right now. Simple. Sweet. Succinct.
