Seeing the Good in Every Moment

So, I am going to do something a little different today I am going to speak from the heart. I mean all my posts are from the heart, but this one comes from a deeper place. Lately, our days have been a little rough. McKenzie and McKayla are teething and have been quite clingy and cranky which really makes our days tough. Anyway, as I was rocking our girls Monday night I starting thinking today really was not so bad. All my girls are healthy; we made it through the day alive and happy. Okay, forget the happy part, happiness is in the eye of the beholder. We made it through ALIVE!! Our family is together we have a roof over our heads (a beautiful one at that; a little messy, but equally wonderful), we have food on our table and we truly do live a wonderful life. I started thinking that no matter what happened that day it has come and gone and we will never have that day again. We need to remember to cherish each moment. Even the moments where I feel as though I cannever catch a break. Especially those moments when I feel as though I am holding a child constantly; actually I need to cherish those moments even more. Those moments are fleeting. My girls are not getting any younger they are only growing up; I will not be able to hold them forever.

Tonight was equally tough. I am not feeling well and Steve was at a work function so bedtime was all on me and let me tell you putting four to bed is not easy. And tonight was extra tough. Lately, McKenzie and McKayla have actually been pretty easy to put to bed, but guess what not tonight; isn’t that how is always goes? You know what as I sit here and look back on our evening it was only an hour that was tough. An hour? Really? At the time it seemed like an eternity. What I am trying to tell you and myself is that is the moment things seem much worse and much more difficult, but try to take a step back and breathe it’s really not that bad.

Well, you made it!! This day has come and gone. Whether it was a great one for you or the worst it is over with and tomorrow is a new day. You cannot change what happened today you can only change how you are going to react to it. Wake up tomorrow and make a promise to yourself to cherish each moment. Wake up tomorrow and make a promise to choose happiness, choose to look at the good in every situation.

      I am so glad this post was so inspiring. I started this blog to be a place we can all come to and help each other through the rough times and cheer on each other during the good. I really try my hardest to be positive I think it makes a huge difference in everyone’s day. But I must say some days it’s not easy. 🙂

      Awe, thank you!! I like that idea of thinking of one positive thing because we all know that sometimes one thing is hard to come up with. 🙂
