I have been sick this week and even though I haven't been doing much the house has stayed tidy. We still make the bed together each morning when we get up, and even though I have had the flu, we have maintained a rhythm where we share the daily routine of hanging the washing on the line, washing up or packing the dishwasher and doing the floors. Keeping the house lovely.
All these things felt so easy.
There was a time for me when everything felt hard, whether it was cooking myself something to eat, or just doing my housework. Life felt complicated, like a struggle.
It feels amazing now to feel a simply joyfullness in every part of my life. I love to cook for me now not just for everyone else. Cleaning the house which has always been something that I love is so simple now, it feels like it keeps itself clean. I just do little touch ups.
I feel like my life flows now in a simple unfolding rhythm. The word that comes to me is "exquisite".
