There's a Place for Everything

It's amazing how easy it is to mess up a bedroom.  Like, soooo easy!!  Wake up, get out of bed, don't make the bed.  Take a shower, throw the robe and towel on the floor.  Try on four or five outfits, don't put anything away.  Bonus points if you leave those clothes on the floor. It's just so much work keeping my bedroom clean!!  My living room, kitchen and dining room are usually pretty neat and tidy.  But the bedroom just collected crap upon crap and I had a terrible habit of putting anything away.  About four weeks ago I had an epiphany.  I can not relax in a messy bedroom.  So how can I even have a good nights rest?

I guess you can call this my proof of cleanliness.  But since I kept my room so neat and tidy for 3 weeks in a row, I decided to treat myself to some much needed curtains and lamps.   And a plant!!

On Being Content

My boyfriend and I have been together for a little over a year now.  He has taught me so much in this past year about being content.  Not just happy, sad, or otherwise.  Being content is that feeling of being completely satisfied and fulfilled.  His contentment is something I really admire and it's started rubbing off on me.  I'd always compare myself to others.  Their looks, their salary, their lifestyles, etc.  What he has taught me is that none of that matters.  What matters is, we love each other fully, we always have food and we have a roof over our heads.  About a year and half ago, these things would have never made me fulfilled.  A hapless marriage will do that to you.  Fast forward 1 year 6 months later and I'm feeling more close to happiness than I ever had before.

A New Place to Start Again

Blogging is a bit like riding a bike after you haven't done it for months.  A little tricky at the beginning, but after a few strokes of the keyboard, you start finding your groove.  The Semi Sweet, is my groove.  I want to continue sharing parts of my thoughts, pictures, and day to day life and I am doing this so I can document parts of my life that I enjoy and want to remember.

Follow along for fun posts about how I live the life I want to live.
