One of those days that you realize that happiness is a warm spring day.
The day that you realize happiness is having a cup of tea with a friend.
The day that you realize happiness happens while cuddling a cute puppy.
The day that you realize you have a community and that this place truly feels like home.
The day that you realize that God tells you what you need to hear, when you need to hear it. And how privileged we are to be in a relationship with Him.
The day that you appreciate how nice it feels to take a hot shower right before passing completely out at night in a soft bed.
It was one of those days that I realize that happiness happens when you take the time to be thankful for all the lovely little things that happened that day.
Yesterday was so nice. It was busy as ever but so full of lovely little incidents. I get into this mindset that responsibility is putting work before pleasure. Which is often true. But I don't think I can afford not to take time out to enjoy my days anymore. 20 minutes of downtime appreciating my world and my life is probably one of the most productive things I did yesterday. It refreshed me so much and made me more ready to tackle my overwhelming to-do list.
Thank you, Jesus, for the ability to experience how beautiful life is.
