Thankful for the Little Things
For some reason, a simple plate of Girl Scouts cookies reminded me of her. The humble little shortbread cookie, with its sweet crunch and chocolate coating, was supposed to just be a quick breakfast fix. As I dipped it in my coffee, I thought of its message: thank you.
I believe very strongly that our circumstances do not determine our happiness, we do. Though I have a lot of frustrating moments these days, I'm making more of a concerted effort to focus on the positives. I have a lot to be thankful for and recognizing that, rather than taking it for granted, can only lead to more happiness. As silly as it sounds, yesterday morning I was truly thankful for my shortbread cookie. Not only was it a nice weekend treat, it was also a much needed reminder to be thankful for the little things.
