Every Thursday morning, I am blessed by reading Alyssa Forcehimes’ blog, Leading with Heart. Yesterday was special for me in that Alyssa gave me exactly what I needed. Her message was a simple one of being thankful for the small things that come your way each day.
She made her own list for the day:
“Thank you, small, sour blueberries, for making the big, dusty-colored, sweet ones taste even better.
“Thank you, world, for aligning exactly 14 hangers in the laundry room to perfectly match the 14 shirts needing to be hung up from the dryer.
“Thank you, stern warning message on my laptop, for telling me I need to stop and plug in and giving me a reason to take a break.
“I’ve noticed that in these small moments, when I pause to notice what’s right and good, I feel a sense of calm. And that feels nice.”
So I’m making my own list this morning. It begins with: I’m so lucky that Alyssa Forcehimes came into my life and helped me be a better man.
What’s first on your list this morning?
