Be Breezy


I was watching my daughter in the backseat of a car the other day.  She had her hand out the window and was feeling the breeze as it pressed against her hand and blew through her hair.  The sun warmed our heads.  She turned to me and said, “doesn’t this feel so good, mommy?” And, it did. Oh, the renewing power of closing your eyes and just feeling the sun and the breeze.  It struck a chord that got me thinking.  Here’s what I thought . . .

I am going to work on being a bit more breezy . . .

Then, I noticed my terminology . . . “work on” being breezy.  Hmm, I think I failed right there and then.

I want to be breezy in the sense of being in the present and enjoying the every day moments, but also in the sense of approaching my life in a breezier manner. I sometimes take myself too seriously. Okay, “sometimes” is really most times. I get so focused on work, so intent on making things as perfect as possible, I forget that its okay to just put small thoughts out there . . . in short, in brief, in all their breezy glory. On the blog, I don’t want to post only finely polished projects, but I want to share things I’ve been thinking about, small revelations about my life or thoughts about my family or my work.  It will be just fine to post a random thought here or there when it strikes me and walk away from the computer and relax.  That is just what I’m going to do.

I hope the wind is blowing and the sun is shining where you are . . .

Also, don’t look at the word “breezy” too long.  It starts to look weird.

    Wow! I love this post so much because there are many of your words just what i want to say. And i just also think i’m living too seriouly, trying to be perfect for all, so i made myself too tired sometime. Maybe it will work very well to share random thoughts in blog that came to us anytime. I will try it like you do. And i subscribed your blog so that i can read your posts everyday. Thank you!

    P.S. Your daughter looks so lovely :)

      Thanks so much for your response. Starting to get stressed about my breezy post :) But as my husband commented, “It’s a little too long to be breezy!”

    You are welcome :) I also showed my fiance about your blog, he said to me “it seems that you find yourself in the blog but pity that you have no such a lovely daughter”, lol…

    I love your project post, but I also really enjoy the “in the moment” ones. I totally agree with what you said. When I saw your daughter, I swear I could feel the breeze & how lovely that she enjoys these moments, too.
