Friday Favorites #30

April 17, 2015

There is really nothing that puts me in a positive and creative mood more than  being able to take a walk through the neighborhood on a beautiful day.  I've gotten to do that a few times this week, and my mind seems so much clearer.  It is amazing how a simple walk can make it feel like anything is possible once again.  

I'm lucky enough to live in a neighborhood with little traffic that is also a very short distance from a cemetery with a paved path.  Some people may view walking through the cemetery as a little morbid or freaky, but can you really think of a more quiet and peaceful place to be?  

A trip from my house, around the cemetery, and back takes about 30 minutes, which is just enough time to relax.  Unfortunately that trip is also the first thing to go when life gets too busy.  Do you ever find yourself eliminating the things from your day you actually enjoy, in order to get more done that you don't?  

This weekend, I hope you take the time to do a few enjoyable activities along with the chores that must be done.  I'd love to know what little things you do to see things clearly once again.  

Have a great weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday!

I try my best to find images from their original sources to credit the owner of the picture.  Sometimes the picture gets separated from it's source, and without a watermark cannot be traced easily.  If you find something here that belongs to you or someone you know, please email me and I'll be happy to link back to you or remove the image if that is what you would like.
