When Mercury is in retrograde I try to keep a low profile. It is a good time to go within, reflect and make assessments. It seems I am continually evaluating my memory keeping process. What works? What do I have time for? How do I maintain using what supplies I have? I am finding more that I am content with accepting what I can get done and being happy with that outcome. I used to get upset when I didn’t have time to scrapbook or engage in some other creative endeavor, but now I try to savor the time that I do. Recently, I get about 1-2 hours a week to do something creative, which isn’t a lot of time. And right now, a majority of time is spent on my household projects and diy things to make my home more comfortable and just make life easier. And I am good with that. I know I will always have photos to organize and print, and hopefully one day be able to tell its story.
My beau hung Some pieces for me in the entryway of my house. I like to have the ability to change things in and out, so I attached some prints I bought at Clover Market onto these boards with clips.
One of my yogi friends surprised me with this Lokai bracelet. Love the idea and message of it. It’s always good to remember there are highs & lows, and it’s all just part of the journey.
As always, Leo from Zen Habits has some great posts lately. I enjoy his quick and to the point ideas. Sometimes it seems like things that should be so obvious to us, but isn’t always.
Happy Memorial Day weekend! I will be picnic-ing, as well as working in the backyard on the new patio.
