A Change Has Occurred

The sun graced me with it’s presence today and I had a wonderful opportunity to take a long walk and see the change that is occurring with the seasons. The once green leaves are turning brilliant shades of yellow, orange and red.

I spent the hour reflecting on my life and how much things have changed for me.

Just like the changing of the seasons, the change in our lives is not immediately evident. Change often occurs so slowly that we hardly even notice it while it is taking place. I reflected on my life now and how truly different a person I  have become, even over the past year.

Life is so much more simple now. We don’t have any television stations, but only use the T.V for an occasional movie or Yoga DVD’s. We don’t have a microwave, I heat all our food on the stove top. We do not own cell phone and if you are looking for something to eat in our house, you will only find whole foods and will likely have to use your imagination to create a well-balanced meal. There is no refined flour or sugar in here and no packaged foods.

I realized that I don’t know what Lady Gaga is singing about these days or which celebrities are cheating on their spouses. I don’t know what the latest fashion trends have changed to or what movies are playing in the theaters. I probably couldn’t even text 10 words in a minute. I forget the taste of a hot dog or a Pepsi. I only know what the weather is like when I step out the door and 90% of the time I don’t even know what time it is.

I must have forgot about all that while I was busy taking in all this…

It isn’t always obvious to me, how different my life has become, until I am around other people who I realize I can no longer relate to at all.

Yes, my life is definitely different, very simple and to some maybe even old-fashioned. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I am enjoying my life and who I am becoming.We may not have a lot in the eyes of others, but we have all that we need.

I have learned a lot over the past year, but the most important thing I have learned was put perfectly by The Beatles, “all you need is love.”

  1. Absolutely beautiful Tiffany. I am very proud to have you as my daughter in law but must admit you have been more like a daughter instead a daughter in law. Great job

  2. I love and respect the woman that you have become. You have discovered, at an early age, the meaning of true happiness. Our happiness is not dependant upon things; but upon living each moment to the fullest and in being grateful for each moment.
