Monday Musings

So I happened upon this question....Want to find more happiness in your life?  Why of course, who doesn't right.  The answered that followed it was this....Appreciate the small stuff. You are blessed more than you realize.

Maybe that's an important reminder this Monday as how often do we all over look the small stuff?  Probably a lot more than we even think.  It's so easy to get caught up in the craziness of life sometimes, easier to focus on what we don't have as opposed to focusing on what we do have. 

This weekend while spending the day with my niece and mother I tried hard to simply focus on that moment. To not let all the other stuff that's been weighing me down lately ruin the moment.  And you know what it felt good.  To be completely in the moment playing board games, basking in my nieces laughter, appreciating all the small things that came with that time together made my heart smile.

After what felt like a rough week it was needed.  It was a week of not exactly feeling good. And one in which dealing with a rather unkind, unpleasant person made me wonder if people come into the world as such or do they become that way because of their experiences?

Today I'm thinking it would be nice to have a day off from reality, maybe a day without people, problems and some of the bs that I've been dealing with.  A day to simply focus on all the small, good things about life.

Like vanilla frozen yogurt sundaes with crushed oreos, caramel and whip cream. Which happens to be my new favorite dessert!
