Watering Daisies

I realized the other day that I do not seem to fully enjoy my flowers except for when I am watering them.  I thought to myself—why have something if the only time you enjoy it is when you are taking care of it?CIMG1867Are there things in my life that I do not need because all I am doing is wasting my time taking care of it?  Or perhaps I just need to make the time to stop and enjoy it more? 

Some things I am thinking about…

-not being so busy that I am only taking care of but not enjoying the people in my life {husband, future children}

-minimizing what I have around the house…only keeping things around worth investing in for their enjoyment CIMG1871Is there something worth letting go of because it is sucking your time…or do you need to make more time to enjoy that something in your life?  Tell me what you think.


  1. I so wish I could keep a plant, ANY plant, alive!

  2. I think if I gave up TV, I could get a lot more accomplished. Like all those projects that I've started and never finished. LOL

  3. you don't suppose I could give up the dishes, do you? sigh... lol. I could probably get a lot more done if I gave up The Internets. But then again I'd also be giving up a lot of my sanity from chatting with other women instead of just a 2 yr old all day, so I doubt I'd enjoy my newfound free time...! lol!
    One thing i really SHOULD do is a great big PURGE in my craft room. It's such a disaster I'm doing no crafts at all. Buuuut I'm having a crafting party on thursday (for my birthday. I'll be eighty. I mean, twenty three. LOL) so I do have a deadline, so it will get DONE!

  4. Girl, you hit the nail on the head. I try every day to find balance in all the things on my list and still fit me in or time to enjoy those said things on the list. It's a never-ending battle. Wait until you have kids and your list doubles. Then it gets real tricky. (Don't get rid of the daisies)

  5. I hear you. This seems like a never-ending crusade, at least for me. I would love reading more about how you go about pursuing simplicity in your life. It's something I want, but have a hard time actually doing. :)

  6. I decided a while back to only have the things I love and only do the things I love. I believe it is a state of mind. I like the sayings "change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change" & "change your thoughts, change your life". Your daisies are beautiful... I enjoyed them, thank you for taking care of them!~Jacque

  7. That's quite thought provoking. I have so many hobbies that I don't have time for half of them. But I can't seem to give any of them up. But you make an excellent point. All the time spent on those hobbies is time away from friends and my husband and there's a skill in balancing it all. I think it's time to declutter some things in my life. Thanks for the fresh perspective.
