The simple things

I am really starting to appreciate the simple things in life. Things that 12 months ago I might have taken for granted because I wasn't open to them or I was just too busy to appreciate them. The last 12 months have been some of the hardest times of my life and i've had some really low low's but i'm actually grateful for all of it because i've learnt so much. So much about myself, about the people I surround myself with. It's made me appreciate what I do have and not worry about what I don't.

Simple things like this morning watching my boys take turns turning the handle on the Quick Chef washing strawberries. I just stopped and watched my gorgeous boys that I have created and watched them get so excited over such a simple thing. I love watching them do things, learn different things and see life through their eyes. It's so innocent and pure.

It feels amazing to be more present and in the moment. Slow down and smell the roses. Appreciate all the small things and NEVER take them for granted.

  1. I'm hearing you!
    I too have been through a rough patch lately, but it has opened my eyes to so many thing's I would not have even bothered with before!

    Your boy's are adorable by the way! :)

  2. Thanks Emily!!
    Life is definitely a rollercoaster and all the little things are magnified once kids are involved too. I think we all need to stop and smell the roses in life.


Please leave me some loving....
