A lot of great things have been happening the past month. One of which is all the love and positivity everyone who has been reading my blog has been giving me. You are all filling my heart with warm and gooey things, so thank you! My husband and my best friend both started college! Whoa, super proud! And I’ve been booking more weddings than ever for my rental business. It’s been ridiculously busy, but at least it hasn’t been boring.
So a godly and hardworking old man I knew passed away yesterday. I know I’ve been focusing a lot on following your dreams and finding your passion, but when it comes right down to it, when you die, it doesn’t really matter whether you ever actually found your passion or followed your dreams. What matters is if you truly understood why you are here on earth, and what’s going to happen to you after you die. The only thing that matters is whether you choose God. He’s already chosen you (hence why He created you). Everything else is just like delightful little cupcakes, fun to enjoy, but you still have to have your main meal. Rest in peace Gene.
Since we are on the subject of delightful little cupcakes, I would like to start doing a monthly gratitude list of the little things I’m thankful for. It’s easy to focus on the negative (guilty!), and to completely ignore all the wonderful things that go on in your life. This creates complete and utter discontent. Well, it’s time for me to pump out the grumpy, and pump in the positive. So here are some of the little things I’ve been enjoying lately:
The long tufts of hair that oddly poke out of my kittens paws
Colorful to-do lists with heart shaped bullet points
Random treasures found at yard sales
A glance up at the stars
Glass bottled root beers
That brief moment I was able to open my window and let in the fresh cool air
My homemade room spray with sweet orange & lavender essential oil
People surprising me with food
Finding organic olive oil at Aldi
So what have been your little cupcakes lately? List em’ out.
