Working towards inner peace

I keep myself pretty busy and all the while I occasionally forget to stop and smell the roses, or take time for me.  I started this blog to tell stories of my life, creativity, food, and whatever else happens to be going on.  Instead I get busy, tired, and I forget to do little things, like blog, make jewelry, or beads. I  try to make sure everyone else in my life is taken care of and happy, or at least healthy.  Ah, the life of a working mom, or any mom for that matter.  Now, my kids are older, can take care of themselves so my entire life does not revolve completely around them (lol, yeah right).  I am taking time, space, and effort for me, just me.  To see if I can find some of my inner peace.

One of the things I am working on to do this  is a meditation space, somewhere in the  house.  I have lots of stuff (working towards clearing out the non essential  stuff a.k.a clutter) and not enough space.  I figured finding the clam meditation stuff  was going to be super easy. A few candles, something to sit on, something to focus on, and boom, instant meditation space.   Not quite.  

What I have discovered is, if I want to truly make my space for me I have to find things that “speak” to me. Not buying more stuff to fill more space into my already cluttered home. This too is part of the my journey.

I have been looking for a Buddha statue of some sort for the past few months.  I figured it would be a fairly  easy task seeing how there are Buddha figurines everywhere. I found really cool ones all the time when I wasn’t looking for one. As I searched I found never one that I wanted. Then yesterday I found it!  I saw and knew it was for me.  It was made in Spain and made of recycled glass.   

I still don’t know where my space will be, but now, I’m one step closer.
