day 26 covet
I finally had a photo opportunity today that worked figuratively for this prompt. Thank you for reading. Here is my journaling: covet. to yearn to possess or have. to wish for earnestly. as i started a list of things i covet, i noticed a theme immediately. i covet time. time with my family. time with my kids, one on one or both of them. time with my husband. time to be busy. time to be creative. time to explore. time to connect. time to be still. my alone time.
i covet relationships. relationships with my family. with jaiden. with alyssa, with dennis. with my dear friends. with myself.
i covet experiences. familiar experiences like going to the pool. new experiences like traveling. i am excited for our upcoming summer trip that involves some familiar places and a new place.
i covet routine. yes, even routines, which prior to children, i would have vehemently rejected routines but with children, i have learned to covet routines. not strict routines, but somewhat predictable with a splash of spontaneity.
i covet good health. especially now. simple fresh food. yoga. feeling healthy and strong. being active. living simply.
i discovered very little on my list had to do with material things and thatís not to say i donít covet those things. i think i have reached a point in my life to be happy with what i have. and satisfied. being more with less. in a way i covet simplicity. and simplicity has always been a part of who i am. i am now better in touch with who i am and have stopped searching. stopped coveting things only to look inwards and know i have exactly what i need. and want.
