It's so easy to feel the strain of being pulled from circumstance to circumstance, need to need. But it is also so easy lighten our loads; to let all those worries worry themselves and enjoy whatever little detail shines its bright little self our way. That was a resolution I made, to find something little every day to make that day special. I forget most days, but I'm trying to make it a habit that I don't live day to day, annoyed that big goals are being met and I'm not saving enough money. But I can meet little goals, get a cup of coffee to sip while I do my grocery shopping, or I style my hair a new way. Something to set the experience of today apart from the experience of a hundred others. Note: the special things are 100% about what blesses you and not what sounds nice that other people do. For me coffee is always a blessing, FYI.
Maybe my mind calculates everything around me to be saving grace, and I'm too much of an optimist. Or maybe I just see myself in constant need of being saved, and am therefore a pessimist. Who really cares what I am?
I'm learning all the important hugs about not stressing the small (or big) stuff, enjoying, and being true to who I have been created to be. That is absolutely satisfactory for me.
