It is crazy how much one person can change your life. How a child can be born and your whole life turn around. How everything that you thought was important no longer seems relevant. How, as she grows she pushes you to want more and do better for you and her. On this day 9 years ago, I was blessed with a little girl that would change my life. She rocked my world from the moment she entered.
Not only has she changed my life and motivated me to want more, she has taught me so much along the way. Her love for animals is something out of this world. Her compassion and grace is something that brings me to my knees. Her innocence and love for all things reminds me of the good in this world. Her youthfulness reminds me of the little girl in me, the dreamer in all of us.
As the New Year approaches think back on this past year. 2020 was not the best year for many, in fact probably for the majority it was really hard. However, there are lesson learned in everything that we do.
Instead of being angry about how things are not working out for you, let’s work on being grateful for the things that have gone right for us. Celebrate every win, no matter how small. Be grateful for everything, big and small. The more gratitude that is shown, the more you realize how blessed in life you truly are. Remember, it’s the little things that matter.
Show kindness to everyone regardless of how you really feel about them. Imagine how the world would be if we just showed kindness to everyone. You never know what someone else is going through or dealing with, show them kindness. You might be surprised about how much better you feel about yourself when you do.
Do more of what brings you joy. Find out what makes your heart go pitter patter and do more of that. It doesn’t have to make you money, it doesn’t have to be done for someone else. It is all about what makes you happy. You being happy and so full of love for yourself should be your main concern. How can you possibly take care of anyone else if you aren’t taking care of you.
As we embark on another year, I challenge you to make this coming up year the best year of your life. I plan on making it the best year of my life.
Whatever you do, share some more love, we could all use a little more love.
