2011 was a tough year. It started off difficult and remained that way right up until the December 31st. I shared some of it with you. As much as Inspired aims to be a daily escape for my readers, I think readers appreciate more than just the fluff. I have found that people relate to realness. So, if my struggles can help anyone else than I am more than happy to open up.
As bad as things may seem, there is always something positive thrown our way. What helps me is to try to focus on the positive. I recently read something about a man that struck a cord. Instead of saying, "I have to go to the grocery store," or "I have to take my son to basketball practice," he says, "I get to go the grocery store," etc.
How very lucky that we "get" to do these things no matter how mundane. Lucky that we are healthy enough. That we have another day here. Fortunate enough to be able to hug our kids, tell Mom we love her or make a friend laugh.
Here are a few small things that brightened some tough days and gave me reason to pause and give thanks.
Truly, there are so many little things when you really stop to think about it. Now it's your turn... what made your life a little sweeter in 2011?
