“A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one’s neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.” ― Leo Tolstoy
There are some things in life that make the heart warm and cozy, and there are some things in life that make it soar free. When we seek both with fervent passion, it is there we find life.
Whether you find it in a cup of hot cocoa on a cold winter’s evening, in living a life of authenticity rather than insecurity, or in growing perfectly red and juicy strawberries in your own backyard, this simple and whole life is yours for the taking.
Seeking wellness, growing relationships, thinking intentionally, pursuing your passion, and living simply- these create beauty and meaning in a culture that glorifies busyness and a hurried existence.
A life lived intentionally is a life lived well.
I love quiet mornings with soft breezes and walks at twilight where the sky is my only ceiling. A steaming cup of vanilla herbal tea and acoustic music are my companions while I ponder words and write wisdom. My wild-about-life kitten and I share a cute little house on a quiet cul-de-sac, where we marvel at sunsets and watch Gilmore Girls.
My dream is to one day live in a quiet corner of the world that embodies the simple and happy existence I long for.
I believe that there is always more to see than first meets the eye; look again. I believe that more does not mean better; less is more. And I believe that when life is lived with intention, the possibilities are endless.
