When was the last time you thought about the WONDER of YOU??
… taking care of each other, family, friends, strangers….. making a house run like a well oiled machine… making sense of pure chaos at 715 am when you look up and the cat is drinking milk out of your daughter’s cereal bowl, the left snowboot is nowhere to be found, you’re uninspired for designing, you just spilled hot coffee all over your brand new pants and now that your daughter is fully dressed in winter gear, she tells you walking out the door to school that she has to go to the bathroom….. YOU –although slightly frazzled- can simply make a day that starts off like that turn into day that ends with a quiet calm and peacefulness like no other.
YOU have the power to have two pots on the stove, while emptying the dishwasher, texting your mom, little one tugging your leg asking for milk and still calmly kiss your husband when he walks in at 5.
There is power in you to spread your wings…. there is power in YOU to be anything. Keep life simple, love life simple…simply be you!
