Living life in 2017

There is so much going on in the world, so much change. But in times like this, I find I feel best when I keep looking ahead, moving forward, finding and doing things that make me happy. I feel like there are a few things we all do that bring us calm, like:

1. Taking pics of our surroundings https://www.instagram.com/p/BPObt3rgYQq/?taken-by=robinwrites
2. And our pets https://www.instagram.com/p/BO8-vX4A4zO/?taken-by=robinwrites - We adopted a dog, Ella, from the shelter in April, and she brings us so much joy.
3. Making good food https://www.instagram.com/p/BK1OQZmj0IX/?taken-by=robinwrites
4. Spending time with family and friends https://www.instagram.com/p/BNOYFH5jXyv/?taken-by=robinwrites - This was from Thanksgiving here at our house.

And even though all of those things are Instagrammed, it wasn't as much the documenting, but the doing of them that made the difference for me.

As the world becomes more automated, digitized, mechanized, and instant, I find more solace in the slow, the human connection, the beauty of crafts, good coffee, and the simple things.

Something I want to try: A face and body cleanser that takes away what it should and leaves what you need https://shop.motherdirt.com/product/face-body-cleanser/
