“It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life” – J.R.R. Tolkien ✧
I am a restless soul & while I have many dreams that I would like to accomplish, ultimately I want to live a simple life. I very often live inside my own head & I worry about everything, mostly because I feel that we only have one life & that I need to do ALL the things to feel fulfilled. But when I think more about it, slowing down is something I desperately need. I need to find stillness, peace, & contentment. I think it would settle my continual state of unrest. ✧
One of my biggest dreams would be to move to a coastal cottage in Ireland with old stone walls around the property where I can have a small garden. I’d grow herbs, fruits, & vegetables to make my own jams & other concoctions. I’d love to have some farm animals like sheep, goats, & chickens. I’d even hope to have a hive or two of bees. Perhaps even run a small bed & breakfast to meet people from all over the world. I’d take long walks through the rolling hills & to the coast with my shaggy dog. I would ride my bike into the village to go to the farmer’s market, the bookshop, & to socialize. I hope to one day make this a reality, but for now it’s just a dream. But, it’s a dream acting as a glowing candle in these dark times. ✧
