My day looked like a lot of ugly beauties. Seriously. And I spent most of my day thinking "that is annoying and very ugly" and then trying to switch my mindset to "I am thankful I have _____."
Here are some of my ugly beauties today:
Alarm clocks going off so early (I have a job to wake up for..)
The internet was down at work (we have internet & other luxuries)
LOUD students (they are full of joy and laughter)
Computer issues (funny that these are my issues, again, thankful to OWN a computer)
Crumbs & messes left from kids in my car (I get to spend time with sweet kids who love this time so much I had to BEG them to get out of the car today)
So it was a
"bad day," but it really wasn't once I changed my perspective. Sorry if you're getting sick of me talking about perspective and focusing on the good, it just keeps coming up in my life :)
(Quoting a woman who began focusing on gratitude), Ann Voskamp writes, "I can feel the gratitude starting to soak into my soul."
I love that. Let it seep in & change us.
