Little Things Make The Big Picture

Standard

How many times do we rush off somewhere to work or an errand because the day is so busy? Many of us live to work,but I work to live. I have learned to appreciate and slow down for all the little moments that make up the big picture in life.

For me it’s getting that kiss or hug from my husband and kids before we all begin our day. The friendly wave from the crossing guards I see when I drop my son off at school. The trips to the park, pool or anywhere with my family. Talking with friends and family over a healthy Lunch or dinner. A Fun game night with cherished friends.The Much needed quiet break or nap by yourself. A thank you or any gratitude for a little gesture of kindness.

No matter who you are all these little things add up to a lot to make someones day better. These little things make our day worth it and help us look forward to another day. The little things help us lead a healthy and happy life.

Caring and Sharing?

Standard

In 2014 I’m appalled by the number of people I’ve encountered who act like they r better than others by being nitpicky and disrespectful.
During the holidays and everyday life let’s try to remember to be kind to each other, pay things forward, and remember a time in your life when you were less fortunate. We all have our secret battles to overcome. If someone looks tired or hungry give them some cheer and offer your assistance/caring.
Live a day in my shoes or someone elses who has a chronic condition like IBD, IBS, Lupus,Asthma, Seizures, cancer or a number of horrible things out there. Most of them put on a happy face, try to act normal and rarely ever complain.
Be grateful for what you have because at any time or any day it could all be gone.
