Its Monday and I need some motivation. I came across this quote regarding “enjoy the little things in life” from American Author Kurt Vonnegut this past weekend and it struck a chord in me.
I am trying to focus on the positive because well when I don’t I become Grumpy and I would much rather be Happy , who wouldn’t? This time of year is super busy – end of the school year, opening of the neighborhood pool (I am on the board), swim team (transitioning my duties and its taking time), vacation planning, summer camp plans and the list goes on. I am NOT complaining, wow I am so blessed, but I can get overwhelmed. It seems like the little things we do and enjoy, the day-to-day things and simple moments in our lives just often get overlooked.
Mini Me is growing up so fast and my sweet dog Susie is entering her twilight of life. I don’t want to take one second for granted so I am taking a moment each evening to reflect up on my day and think about the little things in the day that made me happy; things that I should not be taking for granted as I fall asleep. Like the song from White Christmas says “Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep”.
What do you do to remember and value the “little things” in your life? Do you think they have a tendency to get overlooked?
