Linking up with From Mrs. to Mama for her Women Connect series... I wanted to write many thoughts I have been having lately, but am having trouble putting them all into words. I thought I would share some quotes to help, too.
Gratitude has been a big theme in my life lately. I know I write often about all the things I am thankful for... and I probably come across as having a "too good" life. I choose to write about the things that make me happy, thankful, etc. It doesn't mean I don't have a dark sky occasionally, it just means that I choose to focus this little diary of mine on the things in my life that I love.
Gratitude is something I try to focus on every. single. day. If I am feeling down or blue - which I do - I have learned that communicating that with TL is what makes me feel better. He is so good at helping lift my spirits when they are low and knowing what to say to put a smile on my face. My close girlfriends do the same... along with many people in my life. They've made me realize the importance of words - no matter how small, and how they can make someone's day. If you're feeling something positive for someone - let them know, always!
I try to remind myself every morning when I wake up that it's my choice how I want to live my life today. Life really is what we make of what we're dealt. I realize I am very blessed, so that's easy for me to say, but I also choose to focus closely on these blessings.
Sorry this is a bit of a jumble... but I think this is what writing from the heart is all about. Expressing ourselves, even when it doesn't make complete sense.
