There is something that happens every spring and I look forward to it with gusto. It is the peaceful sounds of spring that keeps me working toward a simpler life. I want every day of my life to be just like a spring day!

longing for simpler life

After having the house shut up all winter I embrace a warm spring day, when the windows can be open and all I hear is the sound of spring. 

Right now, as I sit on my porch, cat curled up in the chair, and dog at my feet, the sound of a warm spring day is calming me. The sound of the wind blowing through the tall pines, robins chirping, and the bees buzzing around the dogwood trees brings a smile to my face.

How many times have we busied ourselves so much that we forget to stop and listen to the sounds of nature? I encourage you to stop whatever you’re doing, go outside, close your eyes, and listen to the sound of nature. 

If you are longing for a simpler life, little things like using nature to unwind is one of your first steps to finding balance and peace in your life.
