I sit early drinking my coffee, watching the sun's rays stretch across the sky. I realize how easy it is to walk willingly back to what the world calls "normal.” I enjoy time by myself in the morning to make a game plan for the day.
I’ve found with my to-do list it doesn’t matter how or when things get done; it's easy to focus on time and try to fit more into the day than can be done. I knew this lifestyle would be far from simple, but the simplistic nature is also what I find attractive. There are no deadlines per say; no backstabbing co-workers; no hustle to start the clock in a race through the workday.
I’ll Itemize a list of things to do, order them in priority, and begin. I load firewood and lend a helping hand around my grandmother's house; the place where I live is what most would call her back yard; but known to me as the staging area to the rest of my life.
Progressing through the list takes me to hand-made jewelry I craft for a sustained income in my Natural Connections business. Midway through my morning endeavors I feel a oneness that helps me realize how easy it is to walk back into the "normal” life; it's as simple as mapping out the day.
It is beaten into us from birth until awakening; falsely proclaiming there be only one way we "have" to live. When you step out of the norm you are ridiculed harshly. Quickly causing you to walk back unknowingly half the time. The simplistic nature is what turns me on; I understand hard work and seldom shy from it, which is also my weakness.
The more work the more stress; the better I operate. I’m learning everyday that sitting still is occasionally the most we need to accomplish - to regroup our souls and think of our truest hearts desires!
