Beautiful Mess

Does your brain ever feel completely cluttered?

With thoughts, lists,
to do’s, worries, concerns, this & that?

And all you feel like doing is staying in bed . . .

Sometimes it’s the little Things
Like flowers,
Chocolate,
& beauty that can bring a little comfort, clarity and cheer.
And the surrender to life just sometimes being a beautiful mess.
(Don’t forget to look for beauty : the good : even in the midst of the mess).

    I love today’s post! I’m having quite a stressful week, so I’ve actually migrated back to your post several times today. The smile it puts on my face makes work seem a little more bearable.

    lovely reminder to make each day more wonderful-
    in the midst of messes, spills, wipes and worries.

    I really needed to read that. Helps to put life back into perspective when you sit back and realise that life is taking over. Thanks for sharing and calming! Hayley

    Beautiful living is often embracing the messes in life. I happen to think tiny hand prints all over my windows as beautiful while others might see them as messy smudges.
