I bought my mom flowers.
I called my sister and told her I loved her.
I visited with my brother and we laughed.
I sent a card to a friend and told her I missed her dearly.
I went outside and watched my kids ride bikes.
I cooked my husband a dinner he loved.
I enjoyed every minute of my life.
It might sound simple to you, it might sound boring to you, but to me, it was amazing. I was living my life the way it was meant to be lived. Enjoying the little things and letting the people I love know how much they mean to me.
Not once did I think I’m too fat, I’m not smart enough, I’m too ugly, I’m broke, I have too many bills… I just lived and enjoyed.
I will not forget tomorrow how good today felt.
Hopefully it will be even better.

    Some days will be better, others will be worse. It’s a juggling act which if you figure out, let me know!
    The simple things are often forgotten in the unending search for that pot of gold when they’re right here looking us in the eye all the time.
    And of course you didn’t think you were ugly, fat or not smart enough for a good reason. You’re not!
    Hugs cutie.

    Here’s something else for you to be happy about: Jay Mohr is hosting a new reality show to find a new stand up comic. I saw a commercial for it this morning and thought of you!

    I need to remember to do that sometimes. I get so wrapped up in all the negative that I forget to enjoy the little things that make life worth living. I needed to hear that. Thank you. *smooch*

    What a great post…I had to comment on it. It must be true what they say, paying attention to others needs is the easiest way to forget about our own supposed “shortcomings.”
