It is not easy for me to view the positive over negative. Most days, I fail. I get so overwhelmed, so frustrated.
Currently, I am sitting at a counter COVERED in oatmeal and to say my sink is overflowing with dishes would be an understatement. I really have to push myself to focus on what really matters.
It's not dishes. Or laundry. Or a perfectly organized, always clean home. Sure, it's nice when the house is picked up.
What really matters though are these little lives that need me to be present: to love them, to hold them, to teach them, to be taught.
This is a big goal of mine for the year: Appreciate more. Notice the good. Let go of not being able to control everything. I am slowly doing it. And it feels great.
***Thank you so much for the love this week, friends. ***
