It’s so much easier to remember the worst moments of your life than the many small smile-worthy ones. At the end of the day, most of us fall into bed exhausted, impatient, and generally disappointed, even if we don’t know why. So I had an idea. If it’s hard to feel positive each night, why not force myself to be more present in those wonderful little moments that do make me happy? I’m in charge of my own peace of mind and I can choose to take the daily frustrations and stresses as they come, but focus on the good instead. It’s good for my soul, and honestly, it’s a daily source of inspiration to make the next day just as satisfying.
Let’s face it. Being the kind of parent who is actually involved in the day-to-day of my child’s life, every day, 24/7/365, means that I get caught up in the craziness and forget to appreciate how blessed I am. So my little project reminds me, every day, 24/7/365, that there is hope. There is love. There is a life masala for me to enjoy and I am damn well going to do it!
