Looking for beauty in everyday objects is something that makes me happy. The little Buddha, seen in my featured image, was a gift from my father. There is something very special about him, he is an intangible connection to my dad. He stirs feelings that are endearing, touching and sad all at once. There is beauty in simplicity, there is beauty in complexity.
It’s been a very busy Sunday and I began the day with spinning and breakfast both were very satisfying! So many people are noticing my weight loss lately. It is strange for me to think about how different I look and feel. Really, it hasn’t been that long and my results are pretty striking.
I am prepping to get ready for professional development tomorrow. Aside from the work, it takes to meet that challenge, I am charged with bringing “snacks”. I figured I would offer both indulgences and a healthier option.
I am being careful to appreciate the small things as much as the big things. A hot cup of tea on this rainy cold day. Receiving pictures from my daughter, and good conversation. These are small things but they mean a lot to me.
I appreciate all the small things that make me happy because they make this journey easier. A hot cup of tea on a rainy night. A beautiful picture my daughter shared. These are reasons to be happy. One of student’s told me that his dad tells him to, “Choose happy.” This is great advice for us all.
