You can’t help but love the spirit in this photo. Kids dancing without inhibition is pure and awesome.
The author notes how many great things are happening in her life but she isn’t doing her very best of being grateful. Things that may seem ordinary and common are extraordinary in hindsight; those moments scoot by without notice until it’s too late.
One remedy to the author’s perceived dilemma is to make a monthly resolution. It’s focused. It’s clean. It’s a challenge.
What do you do every day that makes you smile? Or perhaps it makes you think. Or perhaps it’s something that you’d rather sweep under the rug. What do those (sometimes) monotonous, ordinary, habitual actions say about how we live? How do they make us feel?
Why do we do them? Are they helping or hurting us?
I challenge you to make a resolution that matters – one that will improve your life, your work, or perhaps your sleep. Sometimes big life changes are necessary, but every day determination really IS remembering what you want. Baby steps… day by day… however you want to phrase it. Small things matter.
