This word has become such a huge part of my life (and vernacular) recently. With each obstacle that presents itself, I find that I am stepping back and forcefully reminding myself to maintain perspective. I would like to say it's an easy reflex for me see the 'bigger picture', but unfortunately, that's not always quite the case. Some days, I fall into despair and questions of "what am I going to do next??" On others, I find myself feeling strangely calm knowing that He has me on a path that I am yet to discover.
Regardless, it can be frustrating...
However frustrating it can be, I have to remind myself of the daily blessings that are present. I'm thankful for Friday happy hours & Saturday coffee dates with girlfriends...and the amazing latte pictured above =) I'm thankful for the time I had today to reorganize my room. I'm thankful for the soreness I have from my boot camp (the fact I have to wake up in 5 hrs for a workout isn't quite such a blessing). I'm thankful for my friends. I'm thankful for those that love me. I'm thankful for His Truth.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
