My little sock-free corner…

3 things: January 2, 2023

I bought this dresser at a thrift store and still want to paint it, but it’s really working for me right now.

My first list of gratitude for 2023 overflows, so I decided to focus on the simple things.

I am grateful that 10 weeks after my move I finally have all of my socks put away off of the top of this dresser (and everything else, too…but the socks seemed to propagate each week).

I am grateful for the New Year’s Day fire I had in my backyard with my guy. A cleansing of sorts as I burned the last few boxes from my move into my new house. Appropriate timing I’d say.

I am grateful for the red granny boots I wore today. I have been actively searching for them for 10 weeks (since the move). I bought them in Austria this summer but still had never worn them due to the shredded ACL and the aforementioned misplacement. I didn’t even mind how squeaky they were all day with their rubber soles.

Perception is everything. Everything. Continue to find the joy where you can in 2023. Some of the things I learned in 2022 – happiness is a synonym for peace; serenity needs protection from invaders and thieves; never confuse peace for boredom – they are NOT the same thing.
