There are days when it feels like life is just not going my way. Days when I don't feel modern, organic or feel like I am successfully living. When I feel like breathing is just as good as it's going to get.
Those are rough days when even crawling into bed with clean sheets, my favorite blanket and my dog doesn't even make me feel better.
I am currently working my way out of one of those days.
I am starting to wonder: How did I get here? How did life all of a sudden start feeling impossible?
In this case, I can clearly pinpoint the fact that work has felt overwhelming lately. That for 40+ hours a week, I've felt like I am just barely holding on.
While the feeling has obviously thrown me on my ass for a few days, in the mist of brushing myself off and getting up, I've begun to realize how lucky I am. Days like those are few and far between for me. Yet it has also made me realize that I take my daily happy-go-lucky attitude for granted.
So. In an attempt to kick days like those to the curb, I am starting a new series.
If you haven't noticed, I've been struggling to figure out what this blog is all about. I started this blog because the idea of Modern Organic Living makes me happy.
Therefore, my new Days Like These series is going to be all about things that make me happy. Images, ideas, things that catch my eye and make my day.
After a few deep breathes, I feel happier already.
And to jump start the series, my happy thought of the day:
Waking up in clean sheets on a cold Fall day and cuddling an extra five minutes with Mr. Spice.
Sigh. I love days like these....
