Reality Check

After having quite an interesting week unfold unexpectedly, taking the time to jot some things down that remind me of all that is good and happy seems like a really good thing to do. I guess it is just all about growing older, exposing oneself, or being exposed to things that are not always easy to accept, understand, and digest is truly what this life, and life LESSONS are all about. Everyone is dealt different cards, it is really overwhelming at times to understand the "who, why's, how's" of situations. Why some are luckier than others, and those others who are dealt the extremes of extremes with situations that literally bring you to your knees. Like I always say, "every day is a good day when nothing bad happens". Each day is truly a gift, how we choose to unwrap our "present" is ultimately up to us. Here is how I have chosen to recognize and unwrap mine with all things good and happy! *Music and dancing. Ultimately the best way to sweat it out and just feel good. *My camera. Indulging in photography and capturing others bliss elates me to no end. I love drowning myself in others moments of joy. *My husband. He is just SO there for me. He stands by me regardless and seems to love me even more when I can be so hard to love. *Animals. I love my dog, but I also love observing all of the other animals I see in my day. Dogs, cats, birds, butterflies. I love the LIFE of spring and summer. *Good books. Such an excellent way to end the day. Losing myself within the pages of a book all the while cuddled up in bed for the night propped up on tons of pillows. I love it. *My friendships. I love my girls so much. You all are amazing to me. *My parents. Through thick and thin, ALWAYS there. So blessed for this. All things good and happy. It is a great place to be. "I do believe that when we face challenges in life that are far beyond our own power, it is an opportunity to build on our faith, inner strength and courage. I have learned that how we face challenges plays a big role in the outcome of them." ~Sasha Azevedo

It's always good to sit back & reflect upon one's blessings! It can be too easy to focus on the negative in life sometimes.

You're so good at being thankful. It's sometimes hard to remember to stop and think about all the good things. I love stopping by your blog to be reminded of that :)
