Weekend Wisdom: Because I trust my heart, I can say no without apology and have plenty of time for a whole-hearted yes.
I’m feeling hopeful.
It’s March again. Last March wasn’t great. This one is looking better.
Here’s what’s keeping me optimistic in my own little corner of the world.
- I got my first dose of vaccine last week.
- It’s warm out this weekend.
- I’m celebrating this book’s birthday.
- Days are getting longer.
- So are my walks.
- Monthly flower delivery.
- Chatting with friends.
- Members of The Simplicity Space are thriving.
- Browsing spring recipes.
- Moving my body.
- Sharing and connecting on Instagram.
- Someone I love is celebrating his 81st birthday this weekend.
Happy new year dad!
