CHANGE THIS ONE THING, AND EVERYTHING CHANGES.
I know I am a neat freak, always have been. Last week I took some time to really think about what “sets me off” during the day, and see what I could do to change it. The difference has been astonishing.
That forgotten plate I find after the kids have gone to bed – that shows me they took it upon themselves to fix their own snack. They have learned initiative.
The never ending laundry that always needs to be done – that reminds me how fortunate we are to have so many clothes to keep us warm.
Those toys that have been left all over the floor – that warms my heart to know we spent every last minute we could playing and laughing together before bedtime.
The pile of dishes to be done every night – is because I am lucky enough to have so many great people in my life to share meals with, as well as all of the delicious food.
So next time you catch yourself complaining about something, take a minute and recognize what blessings there are in every situation. It’s all about perspective.
