Taking a moment to recognize the little sweet things around me after having a rough start this morning. I overslept which left me no time to work before heading out for the day. I’ve been dealing with some persistent pain that I’m sure is connected to the pace of my life lately which made me not want to get out bed. Not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things but it was enough to put me in a bit of a downward spiral of all of the ways I feel like I’m failing at things. So this afternoon as I’m frantically sewing up orders, I look out and see my daughters at the table. One taking a language arts test, working things out aloud with a smile on her face and one happily playing with play dough. There was a gorgeous classical playlist I stumbled upon playing on Spotify and candles burning and I thought, take a second and enjoy this. Enjoy the things that are going just fine right now even if it all crumbles again in a minute. A moment of thanks can change your mood in an instant.
