Welcome to Live Simply Love Knitting!
I am SO happy you are here!
What is it you are searching for?
What do you dream about all the time?
What are those things that will make you happiest?
How DO you put together a list of priorities that will work for you, and only you?
You long to make a difference in your life. You want to leave a lasting legacy, but you want it to be NOW!
Your life is FILLED to the brim with people, obligations, things to do, to say, to be, with stuff, and more stuff.
Will any of it EVER be enough!
That is the question. But, who has time for questions, when your life is so busy you feel, sometimes, like you have no time to even turn around. Job, husband, kids, pets, home, families, activities, shopping, holidays, vacations, problems, challenges, and those make-it-through times that can leave you truly bewildered.
We all feel as if we are living ordinary lives. Doing ordinary things every day. Trying to do right by our kids, trying to make ends meet on our salaries. Just trying.
I know, I’ve been trying, too.
What are YOUR most treasured dreams?
For 5 years, I tried everything I knew to find a teaching job. Never happened. So . . .
You move on. You move away from the dream. No matter that you had your heart set. No matter that it was all you could ever think about. It wasn’t going to happen.
But, other things DID happen.
In coming posts, you’ll read all about them. For now, keep these points in mind:
- We went from a 4-bedroom, 2-1/2 bath home with a full basement to finally settling into a 1400 sq. ft. home all on one level, with no basement. Lots of downsizing there.
- My husband and I bought a 150-year old Inn in New Hampshire which we ran from 2002-2005. THAT was the hardest I’ve ever worked. And it was the most fun I’ve ever had!
- Our kids are grown and on their own, but our grand daughters will be ready for school in a few years, so education is never far from my mind.
- My hobbies, such as knitting, have fulfilled me better than taking a trip around the world. You don’t have to go far from home to be happy.
- As I’ve gotten older, I realize that EVERYTHING is in God’s hands.
Remember this: there are many ways to live your life, but
Live your life YOUR way!
Don’t live my life. Don’t settle for something else. Don’t be pressured into doing what you don’t want to do. You know what makes you happiest, you know there are ways to make a difference, your way.
Stick with what you know, and go from there . . .
