In my spare time I sit and stare out the window and think about life.
Dishes rest peacefully on the counters, but my Coconut candle is filling my house with aromas so delicious that they cover any hint of smelliness.
My couch is hiding under the laundry, but I smile because at least it's clean.
In my spare time, I don't neglect my sanity. I may sit here and type nonchalantly sipping my ice water, I'm still wearing my pjs and it's almost noon, but I sit here with a smile on my face and a light heart.
I am learning to not feel guilty for reading in my spare time when I could be cleaning my house, but nobody ever had an adventure cleaning their house like I am when I'm sittin cozy on my couch with my steaming cup of tea, cozy in my little life in my little blue house on the corner of the street...
I might as well enjoy it rather than sitting and guiltily trying not to look the mess in the eye.
I love a clean house, and I much prefer it that way, but at the end of the day when I'm tired and just need to relax, I won't go beating myself up for having dirty dishes filling my counters and laundry on the couch.
Because... life is good.
