Change...You Can Do It!
Right now it may be in only little ways you can make a change...it may be only the soap you use on your skin...but each change makes a slight difference in the way you live. The resistance you feel, to what I am saying, the I can't do that...I have responsibilities...is just your fear...so start with soap. Yesterday was my 3rd last day to work as a nurse. I have 2 more to go before I am down to one job, instead of two. Actually, 3 if you count running a household. But what woman gives herself the credit of that job!? I saw this answer by the Dalai Lama on Pinterest...and I thought...I should have had a V-8!!!
So here is the little change I made last week in my life. HH and I have drank old coffee for years. We use a 12 cup coffee maker and because we are so busy we make the whole pot...FAAACCCT!...we drink it for 2 days, reheating it in the microwave. I am not ashamed of this...it worked, we were busy and we didn't care enough to take the time...after all for most days we get up at 4 AM...we can barely see at 4 AM. My sister was appalled! A year ago I started thinking about the process of coffee...good coffee and decided one day I would learn to make good coffee, create a ceremony of sorts...like the tea ceremonies. When I traveled overseas and visited a tea plantation I learned all about tea making and serving. The temperature of the water, the leaves, the love and intention that creates a good cup of tea. Why not do that with coffee. I found the exact French Press RED coffee pot I wanted and I am here to tell you...it only makes 2 fabulous cups of coffee. It is a small change but...each step creates a different life.
So you are asking...where's the quilting in this blog...nada...except, I also saw this on the Pinterest site! Mine would say Born to Quilt ~ Work for BOM's! LOL
Have a great day and make only one change...tomorrow your life will be a little different by the choice.
