There needs to be some positive for balance. Going to focus on that. Every day, two simple things to start with. One: a kindness I do for somebody. Doesn't have to be a big one, but a kindness, to get me out of my own head and more focused on others. Two, stopping to formally recognize something good I see while going about my day.
Today, I let a lady with only a few items in her cart cut in front of me in the checkout line at the grocery store. We had a nice chat about her rescue pup and mine.
Today, I happened to catch a sweet moment between Thing One and one of his campers. This little boy might be 5...a round-cheeked blond cherub. He was so excited to see Thing One that he ran up and hugged him around the knees, since that's all he could reach on my tall lanky son! My grinchlike heart grew three sizes watching that.
Let's see what smiles the universe sends my way tomorrow.
