I didn’t go to church this morning.
I’d meant to, but when I woke up after not quite enough sleep today, I chose to listen to that quiet voice that whispered to my soul, “You don’t have to go.”
You don’t have to. This is an incredibly freeing statement.
So I went back to sleep, and when I woke up, I decided that today was the day I would visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In truth, it had already been on my bucket list for this weekend, before I read Sarah Bessey’s lovely post on Rumors of The Real, but once I’d read it, well – there really wasn’t anything else to do but go.
I’m learning to listen to my own soul, and not push it when I feel resistance.
I’m also trying not to overanalyze it when it’s there.
Simple Felicity is, at its heart, a blog based on the unshakeable belief that happiness really isn't all that complicated. Sometimes finding it can be - but happiness itself is pretty simple, and it's often found in the simplest of things: good food, good books, and good company. So those are the things I write about, along with a few other things that really matter to me, including faith and feminism.
A bit about me: My name is Happy. I have an amazing talent for misplacing my keys, a deep appreciation for whomever looked at the coffee bean and thought, "Hey, I wonder what would happen if I roasted this?", and road trips to Michigan are pretty much my favorite.
