I’m taking this idea from over at the blog ‘a smaller and simpler life’
written by Sue from Wales. She is a wonderful writer and is truly living what she aspires to be.
I’ve always been an introvert but in my earlier years just ignored what I needed. I don’t do that anymore. I don’t like crowds, parties, concerts etc. It’s just not what I’m interested in.
I am truly in a place where I like being alone/or with B who’s generally outside doing something so I have time to do what I want. When he was traveling for work I had many days where I was alone all day till either my daughter or son came home later in the evening. I was perfectly happy doing my own thing whatever that may have been.
I am embracing this as I get older and don’t feel the need at all to ‘fit’ in.
Having embraced minimalism and loving the simplicity of things, I don’t need to overextend or keep busy. I do my daily routines and enjoy the day. I may work on a project or plan something that might need to be done.
Now that we’re in ‘treatment’ mode, there’s no traveling about and as a matter of fact, I just canceled our spring trip to New Brighton beach because another round of chemo will start. That’s okay because I believe you must live the season you’re in and not fight it. We’ll go traveling again when this is over and it will be delightful.
