her internal alarm clock went off and she up was up at 6am and needed to go outside. even though my eyes weren't open, i grabbed my camera and took photos of the sky while she sniffed all the smells that had arrived in the yard overnight. the sky was brilliant with shades of pink pleading with the orange streaks to get of the way. but they didn't budge.
shortly after the exhausting fight, the orange dissolved into tiny little pieces and was replaced with an ebony sky with the most perfect skin tone that made me want to reach out and touch it.
it brought heavy showers and let its thunder shake the house.
it was that perfect morning storm that you wish had happened a bit earlier while you were still dreaming about being a fashion photographer in central park.
oh wait. that was probably just me.
recently this is what i've had on my mind.
i think you can have everything you've ever wanted, but if that everything isn't filling you up and igniting a flame, then all that everything is really nothing. let me put that in a simple way. if you have tons of clothes in your closet, yet feel you have nothing to wear....see, now you're getting it.
i heard about an author whose book talks about the need for all of us to get rid of 75% of the things in our closet. that we tend to only wear our favorite things.
i'm not so sure that 75% pertains to just our closets. i think she was referring to things that weigh us down. the things we aren't passionate about or have any use for. look around you. does everything that surrounds you right this minute, make you happy.
if you're like me, the answer might be yes. i love my office and all the things that surround while i sit here and type. but other parts of my house or my house in general, not so much.
let's go back to the closet. could you. could you happily get rid of 75% of the items in there.
i might try it.
if you're still here reading my words and i haven't lost you, well then you deserve a medal.
but this is how i am. who i am. how i think. how i talk.
if you lived next door and wandered over in your pajamas to have a cup of tea with me on this now very grey morning and we sat in comfy chairs facing each other with our feet all curled up underneath us.....well you get the picture.
