Winter lists on a Monday morning.

Posted: January 19, 2015 by Rachel

We’ve had it easy so far this winter here in Las Vegas. There was a week of bone-chilling cold, and then things warmed up again. Christmas has gone, New Years is a memory, and January is in full effect.
This morning I’m thinking about the here and now.

 

things currently on the table.
laptop in need of charging
half-burnt candle
a discarded banana peel

things that haunt me.
disposing of my college journals.
all the stories I haven’t written.
the self-depricating voices in the back of my head.

things I want to do but won’t.
learn to surf.
go jeans shopping.
stop being envious of others.

the type of woman I want to be.
forgiving
ambitious
patient

what I’m working on.
myself
my marriage
writing. always writing.

things I’ve loved lately.
tiny beautiful things
red lipstick
ending every day reading
a new year

p.s. spring + summer lists.

    I adore your lists- it's such a great idea and they're always nice to read. I too need to stop being envious of others and be a more patient person. I love your blog! Have a great week.

    I am the same way, I can get envious of others too… A quote that I found on Pinterest really spoke to me it says,

    It doesn't matter what others are doing it matters what you are doing. Hope this helps!

    I think that if that makes you happy then why not end your days that way!

    Your "things that haunt me" list.
    I thought I was the only one who had thrown away journals that I wish I hadn't.
    Mine were the ones from the years before and after my mom died. Ugly and real. So embarrassing and raw that I drowned them in a sink filled with water and then directly into the trash.

    And there are many more things on your list that I would write on mine if I had enough courage.

    Thank you for sharing yourself in so many ways, Rachel.

    🙂 Jodi
