I am HFSS – Happy For Simple Stuff!
Remember how I shared that I am seeking rhythm to my life? It’s coming!! I can feel it. I like to do a lot of stuff and fill my days and I just added full time work to the mix. Now I need help to do it all, and I’m not that good at asking, but I’m practicing and it’s working.
I got up early this morning and enjoyed snuggles and coffee in bed before making French toast for breakfast for everyone and prepping dinner.
I then picked up the house a bit and started a load of laundry before meeting my friend for a hike at our favorite place. I asked my new work partner for help, while I was gone and she was a Godsend! I enjoyed a gorgeous and slightly wet, and slightly muddy trek, out in nature, finding joy being out in nature.
I was able to work for another several hours afterwards before leaving again for the first swim meet of the season.
I am thankful for a flexible job that allows me to work and play and be with my family and swirl it all together. The swim meet ran longer than I expected and I had to ask for help at my volunteer job and also of my husband to start the dinner I had earlier prepped. I was very happy to be able to be with my kids, enjoying their competitive sports and sitting with my friends in the bleachers.
I came home with the big kids to find dinner cooking on the stove, with my husband in the kitchen and I jumped for joy. Literally! I asked for help and he delivered. HFSS.
Because he was able to help with dinner, the big kids had a healthy meal and were able to come home, eat and run again. Christian is able to drive them now so I got to sit home and enjoy a quick meal with my honey. HFSS.
This is the best day. I love how things flowed and I found a rhythm to do it all with a little help from my friends and family. Now, back to work! I have a few things to wrap up before getting some rest.
How was your rhythm today? Did you live it up?
Life is good!
