#perspective It can truly shift your world. For better or for worse. I used to be one of those people who thought everything happened TO me. I was always a victim. If something didn’t go the way I wanted there was always someone or something to blame.
It was exhausting. Disappointing and serving no one.
Thank gd, life happened - married the best partner anyone could ask for, had kids, got thrown a few curve balls, changed careers, started reading + listening to a few killer podcasts, all to make me a better mom and wife, learn how to raise stellar kids, help my husband, and in the process started to find the real me. Cliche AF yup but it’s true. And I thank gd for all of it. The hardships in life truly do make you a better person. A stronger person. A better mom, wife, friend, sister, daughter, trainer, life coach, and overall much better person. There are actually times I’ll find myself cringing about the person I used to be.
So now, when at first glance it may seem like the universe is “scheming” against me I look for the flip side. Keep the seemingly life altering events in perspective. Like say a housekeeper going awol at the seemingly worst time, or maybe best? I think there’s truly always something to gain by what we’re given. Even if that gift is to realize just how fortunate we are. RIGHT NOW. In this present moment. Without reaching that next step we’re striving so hard for. That next phase. That next promotion, house, career, vacation... just now. This moment. Amongst the clutter, and mess, screaming and crying. To find the joy in it. The content. The appreciation of this moment, right now.
It has started coming a lot easier to me now. Like taking the extra time I’ve now been given at home to chill with my babes, and put up this delicious soup * check out my stories for the recipe *
But ever now and then I think everyone could use a reminder to appreciate the little moments of real life, in between all the glorious life plans we have💗
I’d love to hear your thoughts below - is this something you’ve struggled with?
