As I was watching this 1 min movie, the first thought that came to mind is :How simple. How true and how sometime we make life so much harder that we should!

Enjoy and live Simple. Relli

lately, well in the last year or so, I finally got that mess and cluter around me affects me in so many ways I did not even know.

“A giant step on the road to simplicity is to eliminate the odds and ends that clutter up your home, our car, your office, and your life. The guideline is easy: If you haven’t used it in a year or more, get rid of it. Getting rid of it can man any number of things: give it to a friend, give it to Goodwill, take it to a consignment shop, sell it at a garage sale, or put it in the dumpster”
These days, I am becoming so good at throwing things, giving them away to people who can use them. It is a hard change, but I can see how being in a clean envinroment helps me become more focused, efficient and the most important, relaxed.
what can you do today to get a bit of the cluter around you away?
Small steps, small steps,
To simplicity, Relli

As I was sitting with my 2 friends drinkinh cold yummy ice coffee, my kids were watching the new movie wall-e.

This us what my kids had to say about the movie “it is an OK movie, there was no moral or something new to learn”.

If you are planning to take your kids to the movie, do not expect too much.

Love, Relli

On Saturday we went to see the movie (Now in theaters) Kung Fu Panda. When I am searching for a movie to watch with the kids, I usually like to know the general message of the movies making sure if is age appropriate for my kids. This time, my husband did the research so I had no idea what the movie was about.

I must tell you, that it is such a great fun movie with a lot of humor but a lot of messages you can pick up and create a wonderful discussion with your children around it.

This is one of the best messages I picked from the movie:

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery and today is a gift.

That is why it is called the Present”!

I love this sentence/quote or what ever you want to call it, but I think it puts everything in place.

  • You can not change what happened
  • You can not control what will happen
  • You only have NOW to enjoy and make the most out of it.

Do you enjoy the NOW? think about it and take a good look to see where you are – in the past, in the future or here and now?

Enjoy the gift of the present, Relli
