I’ll let you in on a little secret.
I have a terrible habit of impatience and am easily frustrated. It’s not unusual to find me yelling at inanimate objects or mumbling under my breath because I’m feeling annoyed.
It’s not something I’m proud of.
I also feel like some days, I simply don’t know where to start. So much to do. So little time.
At the beginning of this year I made a promise to myself, that I would take more moments to absorb all the wonderful little things that happen every day.
Sometimes I even close my eyes. Just for a moment. So I can fully soak them in.
And during those times when I’m feeling immensely irritated about whatever. I take a healthy dose of perspective.
Because let’s face it. I have a lot to be thankful for.
And I really don’t want to miss them. All those precious little things.
Like today, painting with Liv and listening to her hum.
Humming means she’s happy.
Which makes me happy too.
