Simple Life to Me Means...


          A simple life to me means avoiding all drama. I tend to stay to myself. I do things that make my kids and I happy. I do not try to overachieve in anything. I am happy with what I have. I like simple pleasures like a good cup of coffee in the morning, my dogs all bouncy and excited when I get home, hearing birds or windchimes outside, stormy weather, finding something my kids both love, anything that brings a smile to my heart. I might not always smile outwardly, but inside I am happy.

          I learned long ago to keep my life simple. Adding too many people to it gets exhausting. Trying to please others is very draining. Don't get me wrong, I am willing to help others, but I will not go out of my way to do so. It might seem selfish, but it keeps me mentally happier. I do not have to worry about failing others, I used to fret over that a lot. I lived in a constant state of anxiety. I was miserable. I went to bed afraid and woke up afraid that I was not successful at anything. I did not like feeling that way 24/7 so now I stay to myself. I focus on just keeping my little family happy. That is something I am good at :)
