"You are whole and complete souls delighting in the creation of multiple incarnations in which you expand awareness, gain wisdom through lived experiences, and celebrate life.
Whether your lives are happy or full of sorrow,
you believe the stories you tell yourself and others,
because it makes the games you play together more enjoyable."
This blog contains some of the stories I tell myself. I hope you enjoy them. Thank you for leaving comments or suggestions of topics you'd like to hear about.
I'm inspired by this couple who are living big in their tiny home in Portland, Oregon. The interior design is based on the Scandinavian concept of hygge (pronounced hue-guh) that refers to finding comfort, pleasure, and warmth in simple, soothing things: a cozy atmosphere, friendship, contentment, and well-being found through cherishing the little things. While my husband and I still have way too many things, we have dedicated this time of periodic self-quarantine to sorting through long-stored boxes. We are finding out that things we thought we couldn't do without were actually creating an unnecessary burden. It feels good to find new homes for still-serviceable items and even better to let go of what can't be repaired. The phrase, "I'll get to that someday," is passing out of our vocabulary. As AMAG says, "There's no such thing as 'someday.' Ask yourself what you can do to increase your comfort today, then do it."
