Truly enjoying the little things within my day to day life makes a huge impact on my happiness.
In my darkest moments though, its hard to see those little things.
Sometimes those little things can even become annoyances.
Like when my almost five year old is extremely proud of the airplane/robot he just made out of his legos and all he wants to do is share that pride with me. If I am having a rough day I can be caught shooing him off.
But, those little things in his little life are extremely big things. And this is something we, as adults, need to learn to do.
Enjoy the little things.
With everything I have on my plate on a normal day, with out adding in birthday parties, family events, doctor appoinments, ect, it becomes hard to slow down. Even recognize those little things. The depression makes is almost impossible.
But, when I do slow down and enjoy those extra bedtime kisses or a game of Go Fish my spirit is lifted and I am smiling.
Starting tomorrow I am going to start a ten day little things challenge.
One day, I would like to have a lot of MY followers do this with me, but at this point I am going to do it for myself.
I think that it will be a real good mood booster and really remind me to slow down and enjoy those little things. And I think it will be a great direction to start the blog in.
Starting tomorrow I will take a few pictures of something little that I slowed down to enjoy and then write a post about it. I will do this for ten days!
Enjoy whats to come and don’t forget to slow down and enjoy the little things!
I’ve joined some linky parties and have linked up with the below sites!
