Writing this blog has been like using a magnifying glass on the good parts of my life. Posting about things that bring me joy hasn't made frustrating or worrisome things go away -- I'm still losing my job -- but putting the spotlight on the positive has made me so much happier. Nothing in my life has changed since I started my blog except my attitude, and I've already noticed a change in my appreciation for my life.
One of my ongoing fears is that I'll keep looking back at periods of my life thinking "I didn't know how good I had it. Why didn't I appreciate what I had?" I want to make it a life long habit to do my best to appreciate the people, the everyday moments, the places that make up TODAY. Finding Joy in All Things = my personal magnifying glass for all that is good in my life.
What's good in your life today? (If you can't think of anything, pick up a SARK book. She's sure to inspire.)
