An inspirational story about overcoming challenges and making the best of what you have.
Living Simply

         Yesterday, I created my peaceful space in my apartment. I moved into my small apartment five years ago, while working my way out of an abusive relationship. I have never thought of creating my space because I did not expect to be living here as long as I have been. Who knew that a temporary situation would last five years?!

         Since my peaceful place is normally outdoors on my balcony, I decided it was time to create a space indoors, as the cold rainy season has arrived. I move my pretty round table with a pretty matching chair, which I haven’t used in years, in front of the sliding glass doors that lead to my balcony. Now I can sit on my balcony, indoors! As I sit and read, write, and work on my computer, I enjoy the aroma that has been created by the scents of my burning candles and my pine-like plant that sit off to the side of my table. I feel much happier at home because I have been finally able to let go of a traumatic experience and the negative energies that lingered in my home for so long. Amazing how one simple change can make such a big difference in your life!
