My husband gave me a present today

(for no reason except that he loves me, I guess.)

Its a book called It’s Easier Than You Think; The Buddhist Way to Happiness.

I like that it is slim and that most of the chapters are no more than 2 pages long.

Like the lady in my drawing below, I sometimes find myself getting sucked into a spiral (of thoughts, feelings, emotions, and work).

And I often lose sight of all that I have accomplished because I rarely stop to breathe

(or smell the flowers.)

One thing I haven’t lost sight of though, is my love for creating beauty around me..

and the genuine appreciation I feel for all of you who follow my blog and write to me about it!
