Ever have one of THOSE days?
You know. The sort where you’re already down and the world seems to see a “kick me” sign pinned to your back?
I’ve had such a pesky run of bad luck - or trouble, or trying times, or whatever you might call it - in recent months, my life could be a country song. (Seriously. I can actually count a pickup truck and a dog among my losses.)
But a funny thing keeps happening.
I keep accidentally finding ways to maintain perspective. I keep enjoying the little things in spite of myself. I keep singing along with the radio, laughing at my son’s antics, finding bliss in a trail run I nearly decided against. Friends keep lifting me up with acts of kindness. I keep hoping and dreaming and working my tail off, counting on rewards I’ve yet to see. And I keep finding treasure amidst the debris.
Yesterday I had one of those magical days where all the people and messages I most needed found me. I decided I should share a few - click away below and enjoy.
