I’ve been running around all day today getting things done, crossing items off my list and honestly, keeping busy. With more on my plate, I fins the distraction that my brain desperately needs so I don’t get lost on memory lane. I’ve got too much to do, so much to be thankful for that I can’t allow myself to be sad. Only happy thoughts are allowed!
My playlist was spot on. I love my Spotify, it just gets me and knows what I need to hear at just the right time. I would be talking to God or I would think of something and a song that fit would come right on. It amazed me how many times it happened while driving. I sang my heart out. Danced and was silly and cried and got angry… a whole range of emotions.
Simple Man by Shinedown came on. I love love love this song, this version. It is my song to my boys. I belted it out, let me tell you! Listening to the words, it could be directed towards me, someone else…. it’s what I want out of life. I want to be a simple person ruled by love and what makes my soul sing. I don’t want to list after the rich man’s gold or be distracted by shiny things that are materialistic and unnecessary.
My goal in 2021 is to start small. To make little steps to finding ways to get us what we want. I don’t need a mansion but I need a place to call my own. Somewhere for my little family to call home. It may be a studio apartment, I pray it’s a three bedroom home that we can own. Somewhere in between in our starting place and we grow from there. As long as we are together, that’s all that matters. I’m not trying to keep up with the Jones’ or impress anyone. I am making my own way, in my own way.
I love the simple things so it’s time I work towards the basics and then when I’m there, I can add to it. Something is better than nothing. If you water a seed it will grow. I just need that seed. I know something will work out. It is my responsibility to remain focused and unwavering no matter what obstacles I face.
I am getting the hang of this. I’m feeling confident in the moves I’m making. It is time to see how it all plays out.
