Life as I know it

Life as I know it

“My life has changed a lot over the years, and it’s hard not to be resentful of all the difficulties my life has brought me. I like to be optimistic, but being optimistic when things break your heart is an incredibly hard thing to do.

“You can’t be brave if you’ve only had wonderful things happen to you.” – Mary Tyler Moore

Even though my life is lacking so many things I wish I had, the things that I do have fill my life with all that I need.

“Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have.”

Love of sewing

When someone asks me what I’ve been up to, I never quite know what to say. Most things I do aren’t worth sharing, but I do love to Sew. I’m not very good at it; I suck at sewing in a straight line and can no longer push the presser foot with my foot. but I think the fact that it isn’t easy makes me appreciate the finished product so much more.

“At the top of the mountain, you appreciate the struggles along the way.”

I barely go outside of our apartment often enough to prove that I do in fact exist and the main proof of my existence lies in the enormous number of chocolate wrappers in the trash. Because whatever I’m doing it generally involves eating chocolate.

I use essential oils almost every day, I clean a little, I bake a little, watch movies a little too much and I shop a little more than I should. Yeah, I guess my life is boring, but it doesn’t need to be exciting for me to be happy.

“Happy are those who take life day by day, complain very little and are thankful for the little things in life.”
