Quote Series Day 23


“For it is not merely the trivial which clutters our lives, but the important as well.”

— Anne Morrow Lindbergh


In simplifying my life, I was surprised to note that even after getting rid of the trivial objects in my home and trivial fears and questions in my life, that clutter still remained.  I am not referring to a lot of mess in a house, but the filling up of my life with important things.    Granted, a full life is not a negative connotation such as a messy, cluttered house would bring to mind.  A full life (and hopefully, a life well lived) is indeed a blessing.   However, even a full life can be anything but simple sometimes.

My full life includes a wonderful husband that I strive to be a good wife for;  my three blogs, all of which are important to me that I would not to give up;  my family and friends (especially my WordPress friends);  my writing, which I am engaged into now, and my home (which includes two great cats).  I couldn’t, and therefore won’t, ask for anything more.

I am always appreciative of love and beauty, which in and of themselves make a full life.

What would you consider to be a full life?

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!
