Good Things

When I look around at my life, the people in it, the things I do & feel, even my posessions...when I really STOP to take a look, I know it is full of GOOD GOOD things.  Why do we get so busy that we stop appreciating these good things.  I got 2 speeding tickets in the mail over the course of the last couple of weeks.  I wonder..."what was making me rush", "what was more important than me taking my time".  I guess the tickets were Gods way of reminding me to slow down.  For that, I am thankful.  Everyday I go rushing through my life.  Something always seems more important than sitting on the deck with my husband for a cup of coffee, watching a you tube video with my kids, or picking up the phone to listen to a friend.  I get wrapped up in this bubble which is only me & my own world.  It is lonely sometimes.  The problem with me is I don't know how to do moderation.  All or nothing.  So I shut down & close everyone out.  My reason right now is I am restoring... working on Brave Girls.  But what is my reason tomorrow or next week ...everyone has things they want to work on.  I want to stop, listen look, spend time, slow down & respect all of the blessings that my life.  My life is so full of good things.

  1. You've already recognized what you want to do. Just keep moving forward, even if you fall backwards sometimes...just pick yourself up and remind yourself to slow down. Then just take another step forward again. You can do it. It's worth it! You're worth it! xo
