A Simple Life

 
I picked this poster up from Facebook this morning, it says on it that it's available to share .... so I thought I would share it with you.
 
It really is a manifesto for the way we want to live our lives. 
 
Walking the dogs along the promenade at Llandudno today, I stopped and took a moment for myself while they sniffed around the pebbles and shot the seagulls threatening glances.  I looked out to sea, savouring the quiet and the calm on the deserted prom, while out on the horizon dark, almost black clouds were gathering and rolling towards the shore almost imperceptibly slowly.  I knew that before I got home in the car the rain would be back, but I was pleased that during the couple of hours of weak Winter sunshine late in the afternoon we had made the effort to find a quiet spot and breathe.

  3. Definitely a way of life to aim for. I am envious of your day by the sea I miss it so much when we are down here in Yorkshire.

    1. It was 45 mins by the sea then just a 20 minute drive home, we are lucky to live so close to such a wonderful place.

  8. Lovely post and that poster is very similar to the one I posted recently too -0 though mine didn't mention finding a quiet spot every day which I think is a great idea. Glad you found yours.

  9. I needed to read that this morning after a bad night's sleep. Problems at school with son! Aiming to go for a walk by the beach at the weekend (about 40 mins drive from us). The sea always makes me feel calmer and puts everything in perspective. Raining non stop up here for days now. Should stop soon and give way to snow!!

  14. Your post strikes a chord, alternatively I have to agree with Ellen, a storm lashed beach is a special place for me.
