Take a moment to embrace contentment, to learn to love the everyday things that we tend to overlook or take for granted.
I'm not referring to big things, or expensive things.
I'm talking about the nitty gritty, those everyday tasks, objects, thoughts that make our lives what they are.
So every Friday I'm going to be talking about my Everyday Contentment.
You are more than welcome to join me, to take a step back and to appreciate the small things.
No really, you can stop laughing now, because I know that you're looking at this picture and thinking that I've lost my mind if I think that Ironing makes me content. LOL
Truth is, it does. It really really does.
That photo was taken back in 2006. I found it while looking through the old blog posts, and I immediately smiled because that joy on my face is still with me today.
You may not consider ironing a happy chore, but for me it's pure contentment.
I find it relaxing, therapeutic, it allows me to think about my day, to mull over a certain problem I'm having and to just BE in the moment.
So yes, my contentment for today is Ironing, because though it may be frowned upon and looked at as a boring task by some.....for me, it's just another simple homemaking task that I enjoy :)
