It’s been a hot minute!
Hey, it’s Nina! My gosh, do you ever get caught in what feels like a black hole because you have so many things happening at once? Yes, well, that has been my life for the past few months. I have been so focused on the BIG picture that I have failed to STOP and smell the “roses” if you will.
So, considering this misfortune, I have decided to make this month’s theme, APPRECIATION for ALL the little things! Lily or I choose our monthly blog themes based on what we want to work on in our lives and this month I thought it was such an important topic of discussion because of how little time I have spent enjoying the small things in life. The catalyst that prompted me to write about this subject was something so silly but made my entire week and that was when my husband brought me home a NEW tub of lotion. He noticed that I was almost completely out and took the time to go to the store after work and scoured the shelves until he found the exact bottle I use. I was so incredibly touched at that moment that it prompted me to praise him in writing- Thanks, babe!
Something else that caught me off guard was when one of my best friends popped by my house just so she could give me some beautiful flowers from an event she hosted earlier that day. It was probably something so small to her yet, it meant everything to me! Thanks my pizza girl 😉, I love and appreciate you more than you will ever know!
I’m totally going to keep this short but I want you to take a quick moment today and think about all the amazing things going on in your life. Then, I want you to smile because they are probably pretty amazing!
I’ll end with this,
“For my part, I am almost contented just now, and very thankful. Gratitude is a divine emotion: it fills the heart, but not to bursting; it warms it, but not to fever.” – Charlotte Brontë
Until next time my darlings!
