i am content.

3.24.2010



i have enough. sufficient for my needs.
i am content.
yes, there are things/people in my life that cause me great anxiety.
there are many unknowns.
i get frustrated with myself...especially my younger self.
but i am content.
happy to have ceej. a little home. family.
i love my oatmeal breakfast, my morning yoga at home, reading books,
and writing on pads of paper.
i am progressing in my contentment...
the more i learn to be self-sufficient, the less i feel i need things.
my time spent learning about bread and gardens is time spent away from things.
the less i feel i need, the more content i am.
i am crossing more and more off my list...
not because i accomplished them or obtained them,
but because i am letting go,
welcoming a more simple life.
it's a good feeling to let go.
to be content.
yes?

So many struggle to find contentment: when you know you've got it, hold on to it. Give it room to breathe, allow it light. Feed it well.
You lucky thing you!

ah, you echo my sentiments exactly, sweet ann marie. although of course this ability to let go comes and goes itself sometimes. but brava for you, brave soul!

(and psst- a little something you might delight in over in my corner today!)

Beautiful. So simple yet alarming. Being content with what you have is one of life's most difficult things and I envy your words and lifestyle. Acceptance is no easy feat.

yes, I am learning how to be more content - and just be! with what I have and what I hold - inside of me!
