It's The Small Things

Does anyone else lately feel kind of blah from news outlet overload? I know it is important to be informed, especially with everything that is going on, but sometimes I feel like I can’t get away from it between television and different social media platforms. It can honestly be a little overwhelming at times…

I honestly think it is just as important to concentrate on even the smallest positive thing that happened during the day as it is the biggest. I have actually found myself lately making a mental list of all the positive things I accomplished and positive things that happened through out the day and it really does help. 

Around this time last year I had this huge exciting thing happen and shortly after things just seemed to derail eventually to the point where I really felt like I had no other choice but to end it. I’ve been reflecting on that this month some because I honestly don’t understand why things changed so much after, and I don’t think I ever will, and sometimes you just have to be okay with not fully understanding a situation. Then I have a birthday coming up and it’s not like I’m old, but sometimes you just have an issue with turning another year older… 

So to help balance out the news, reflecting on old events, and slightly freaking out over turning another year older here are some of the small things and moments that I have been thankful for that in the end really do mean a lot and can always bring a smile to my face.
