In the midst of the craziness and chaos, there really are some amazing moments. Everyday, instead of seeing the crazy as being crazy, I like to think in my head, or write down for this purpose, things that bring me joy. This helps me to see the world differently. While I was editing this shoot, as cheesy as it may sound, I was so happy. The smiles on these kiddos faces made me think about my own and reflect why I am so thankful for the life I have been given.
For instance, Im thankful for all the piles of toys and laundry. Because it means my children are near.
It’s all about changing perspective.
I’m thankful for all the mess I have to clean up after a party. Because it mean’s I’m surrounded by friends.
Im thankful for all the files of photos sitting in my folders. Because it means I have work.
I’m thankful for the wrinkles that I’m getting around my mouth. Because it means I smile a lot.
I’m thankful that my clothes fit just a little too tight. Because it means I have food to eat. See, changing perspective ;).
I’m thankful for when my kids argue then come running to me. Because it means someone needs me.
I’m thankful for my dog who won’t say off my couch and pees on my floor. Because it mean’s he’s still with us.
Cup half full. Finding joy will leave you so much more satisfied than allowing the negative in.
I hope you enjoy all the happiness these two children have. To be this little again. 🙂
