Reflect on those great moments

I smile looking at pictures of my life. The great thing about packing and moving is finding those “lost” memorabilia.

I “found”the keychain from that Kings Dominion trip. I have the cute magnet that was mailed to me, a picture of that couple whose wedding I attended a few years ago. I found Christmas cards, And I threw away cards from my engagement. I thought about burning those cards congratulating “us” for the marriage, and then I stopped. I stopped thinking and I exhaled. I stopped thinking and I smiled, laughed, and felt a sense of peace.

I have allowed myself to enjoy life. This is a hard task for many. I’ve listened to so many who stress about things and miss their blessings. I was one of those people and had to “check” myself because I’m blessed.

While things never occur the way I envision them; having incompetent supervisors, being harassed, ridiculed, or even having a broken heart, losing a person you think you need, man my life is amazing!!!

As I cleaned out my phone so that I can have more storage, I came across pictures from France, Belgium, Mexico, Dominican Republic. I smiled so hard at the silly picture of Anthony. My heart was full remembering the tea I had with a great friend. The nonstop laughter I had in Jerusalem with my silly soror who I spent a few days with in Spain a few months before.

I see how blessed I am as I look at how much strength I gain with every set back that I encounter. I’m proud of me and I just enjoy sitting and having these moments to embrace those beautiful and bad moments that we are suppose to go on in life!

Today, I challenge you to let your mind wander….. to a great moment ❤️
