A friend of mine posted something the other day that I think we should think about. It’s been five years since her divorce and a time, I am sure, when she felt her life was completely upside down. She stepped into her “new” future one tiny step at a time without a plan, without a net.
Last night she wrote down all the things that she accomplished in these last five years. 91 amazing things. Some things that she might have done had her life “remained the same” but most likely not. Her list is not a list of all smiley things. There are hard times, and very sad ones, but she kept stepping forward. She stepped out of her old life and created something that she never could have dreamed of at the time – a life of contentment (and a life of infinitely more smiley things).
I love this. It’s a wonderful reminder to all of us not to lose the incredible moments of our lives.
Yep, I think we should all start a list! What would yours look like?
From my heart to yours, Diane ❤️
