Black Lace-up Wedges: SM Parisian PlusYou know what's my go-to cure whenever I'm having the blues? GRATITUDE.Often, we focus too much and too long on our problems, on those little buggers that make our life a mess. We think, if we can just change our past or delete this part, then our life would turn for the better. But the truth is, every bump that we had to stumble on, jump over or turn away from is an essential part of who we are today.When we keep our focus on the things that don't go our way, we forget that there are so many things to be thankful for, things we didn't know we needed, things we didn't even ask for. We forget the little mundane things that make our day bearable, the priceless moments that make us smile, the rich experiences that change us for the better and the people who love us no matter what -- yes, the very same folks that you complain about, share your struggles or exchange gossip with, they that tolerate your annoying habits and indulge your whims, they that made you believe you were made for more, they that put you on your shoulders so you can reach for the stars -- don't forget to thank God for them.Quiet down. Think about these things for a minute.You're already smiling, aren't you?Hugs,The Belated BloomerPS: Struggling with my camera and getting all of me inside the photo, as you can see. LOL!
