What’s there to celebrate?
Yesterday was the first nice day here in months. I was thrilled to sit beside my pool and bask in the healing, warm light that was emanating from the sun. Sometimes it takes losing something for a while to really appreciate its value. It’s been a long, cold winter and I didn’t realize how easy it was to take a beautiful day for granted. How many other things do we take for granted? It’s also spring break and for the first time in a while I had my entire family sleeping home under one roof.
Notice the moments that make your heart swell. Take a minute to sit and let the sun warm your face. Spend time with the people you love. Bottle up those deep breaths of gratitude and envelope yourself in the happy times. The rest is just a distraction. Pay attention to the gifts in your life and celebrate everything no matter how silly or small. We are meant to be happy. Don’t be the cause of your own struggle. Choose to live your life and not just go through the motions. Make your trip around the sun worth every mile. This is your time. Shine.
