When I was a kid, I didn’t appreciate the little things.
You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
As I’ve gotten older, and I slow down from time to time, I actually notice so much more. Early, and I mean early mornings in Southern California are one of the most beautiful times of day. One of my favorites for sure! It’s so incredibly peaceful. The chaos and traffic are non existent. In the Summer you can feel a hint of heat but it’s still cool enough for a light sweater. In the Winter it may be cold enough for a heavy robe or thicker sweater but it’s still amazing! So many birds chirping and if I close my eyes for a second, it sounds like I’m in Hawaii. We always have birds around, even in Southern California “winters”.
Mornings are my favorite as I walk around my property in the early am with my pooch and my cup of joe…oh yes! As I’m enjoying my hot coffee and A 20 minute walk about with my lil pooch, all 110 pounds of her, I’m ready for a quick meditation before waking the fam with the smell of breakfast. I don’t know about you but, my pooch is notorious for trying to sit in my lap or lick my face when I start my meditation. Once I feed her then I make my way to the house gym where I light my candle, turn on my laptop and prepare for some me time. Starting my day in a mindful way helps me to have clarity and focus on what lies ahead. Whatever way you start your day. Make it work for you.
LOVE WHAT YOU DO. DO WHAT YOU LOVE.
Being a work from home Mom gives me even more time in the am to make yummy breakfasts after a little am me time. Mornings are for sure my favorite time of day especially when I start my day with a delish breakfast like this one.
