As I lay here listening to my love slumber I can't help but feel grateful for life and love.
I'm learning quickly that life is too short to hold grudges or hold on to past hurts or not allow yourself to be loved. Choosing to love and be grateful everyday is not easy at first but it's worth it. It has a way of making everything that's wrong in your life seem alright.
My daughter is in the other room sleeping, peacefully - that's way more important than the anxieties I have about not having everything I would like to have for her first day of school tomorrow. She has what she needs and she will be ok. The peace in knowing that, is what I am eternally grateful for.
As cliche as it may be, there really is something about focusing on the positive than the negative. Counting your blessings instead of what you don't have. Finding something to be grateful for in the midst of your trials and troubles. Finding someone to serve to bring you out of your own self. There is power in all of this - that honestly benefits you the most.
Do I have more money in the bank to do everything I want? Nope. Am I flourishing in my business so much that I can stop working my soul sucking bridge today? Nope. But what I am flourishing in is peace, love and a little bit of patience with a whole lotta faith. And that's a winning combo to confirm I'm on my way!
