Back To Basics

Today Statement #130:
"Today I will challenge myself. I will step outside of my normal routine and return closer to the basics because that's where I belong."

I am getting back to basics. I am noticing my surroundings and enjoying time with my hooligans. Time slips away too fast and it's time that I return to the things I enjoy most. I took this image at my parents house in the backyard on the ditch bank. Memories of my childhood always flood my mind when I spend time here. It brings peace to my heart to be in such a beautiful place. It's a place that hasn't changed much over time, and although I have, I remember what makes me most happy. I have allowed things to creep into my day and steal time from the things I enjoy, and I won't be doing that anymore. It has been challenging to change my mindset, but returning to this place and noticing it's beauty have convinced me it's the right thing to do. Besides that nothing tops the laughter of my three favorite little people as well as spending time with my best friend. Nothing.
