Focusing on the good stuff

To ease myself back into blogging, I'm going to post daily(-ish) pictures of things that make me happy this month. I hope that will help me to find my voice back.
Each time I start writing a blog post it's full of negativity, sadness, depression, and anxiety. I don't want that. It's what I'm feeling and I do acknowledge and accept that, but putting it out in the world in every little detail is not helping. I don't need to dwell on it. I really need to focus on the good things, however small they are.

So here's my cayenne pepper. Each time I water my plants I feel a pang of joy seeing it grow and bear fruit. These peppers are almost ready for harvest and I'm looking forward to using them for some special recipes. And more peppers are on their way. I love those delicate white flowers.


  1. Hello again G!
    Your peppers and their flowers are so happy!
    I was just telling another friend about a quote I read that is something along the lines of - we don't have to fix everything at once. We can just add one good thing at a time until the good things take over and there is no room for the bad/negative things.
    But you also know that it is very normal to feel deep sadness right now - for many reasons.
    I am wishing you grace and peace and more and more moments of joy and goodness.
    So much love to you,

    1. Thank you. I know it's normal, but I need to find my way back out if negativity and sadness before it takes over completely.

  2. glad you are back and I hope your focusing on good eases your anxiety and gives you peace. You were missed!!

    1. Thank you! I hope so too. It's harder than I thought it would be...

  3. So good to hear from you. And how wonderful to be ready to taste something from your garden!
