I've been going through some health stuff lately. Some of it's been more than a little scary.
I've always been a glass half full kind of girl. I can always find something good to be excited about, proud of, look forward to, dream about. And through all of this I've tried really hard to focus on all the little things that make me happy, hidden in the big piles of poop I've been wading through.
Cooking with miniman, watching a movie, getting something done at work early, using the first squeeze of toothpaste from the tube. Virgin toothpaste...mmmmm......
But the not awesome I'm dealing with at the moment seems to have turned on a brighter light bulb for me. Talk about a slap in the face to remind me that no matter HOW BAD I feel, I still woke up today. And none of us are assured of tomorrow so I'm going to squeeze every last drop of amazeballs out of every second I'm functional during each day.
A few nights ago I was snuggling miniman and he crashed hard. I just stayed in his room for a few extra minutes just to be there. Hear him breathe, feel how warm and cuddly he is, and know that if I did nothing else right in this life I did THAT right!
A few mornings ago we were on the way to work and there was the most beautiful sunrise. I was driving so miniman took the picture for me. I'm pasting it below because it was just soooo pretty. Made me say a few extra "Thank you, God's" for my day.
So my advice to everyone is roll around in the awesome. Every little tiny spec of it. Don't look for only the huge things that you're working toward. Those are great too but there is so much around us every day that is amazing and I want everyone else to be as happy as me!!
Jennifer Kacey is a writer, mother, and business owner living
with her miniman in Texas. She sings in the shower, plays piano in her
dreams, and has to have a different color of nail polish every week. The
best advice she’s ever been given? Find the real you and never settle
for anything less.
