Enjoy Frivolous Things:: soul calm {14/31}

I scribbled this out a few weeks ago, but never posted it for some reason. 

But today in my pursuit of soul calm I’ve found the need to allow myself to enjoy the things I have or just like but don’t need. So here’s a ramble on something I am enjoying  lately. Besides chocolate and newborn snuggles. :)

I have a desk and computer.

For the last three years I have been blogging almost primarily from an iPad. Every now and then I would go format something specifically or upload pictures from a desktop, but as the wordpress app improved I’ve needed to use the desktop even less.

Super convenient.
But as I’ve begun posting more wordy things and actually want to work at being a better writer I’ve felt the limitations of the iPad.

And then when the wordpress app started crashing every other line it became even more frustrating.

Yesterday I remembered Israel had an old laptop that does not function well enough for his software engineering needs. (Something about a 20 minute battery life and being 4+ years old makes it pretty useless when you work in tech). But would work absolutely grand-like for my word-processing and blogging needs.

So here I am typing on a laptop for the first time in a long time. (since about 2011, early 2012, maybe?)

It feels weird, but also official.

And fairly conducive to words.

Granted I am pretty tied to my desk now…but really when all I want to do is sit down and write that might just be a good thing.

Focus here. Focus there. but not on all the things and apps like on the iPad.

Excellent.
I’m excited.

A desk. And a computer.

It feels helpful and hopeful for accomplishing and reaching these quiet goals that tell secrets to only me.

I am blogging everyday this October on the theme of Soul Calm. I want to take the dust of the day and sift it through my fingers. I want to see beauty, drink peace, and rest in calm assurance. Let the dust drift away, seen and unseen, beautiful, maybe, but not mine to keep. I hope it blesses you. You can find the collection of Soul Calm posts here:

Find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads!
