The 10 Best Things That Happened Today

sunflowers3If you’re like me, you probably hit the floor this morning racing around to get ready for your day. Your brain likely kicks into overdrive once the alarm goes off. You look in the mirror, hone-in on what’s wrong with you, then start mentally listing the problems and challenges you’ll have to tackle during the day ahead.  And that’s all before 9 am … AmIRight?

At some point during my day today, I started realizing that there were loads of things going RIGHT. You know, those things you overlook most days … and even some unexpected surprises. So, by the time I was on my drive home, I decided to make a mental list of the 10 BEST Things That Happened to Me Today … to thumb my nose at Chronic Negativity. (Take that, you soul-sucking-vampire-like-energy-thief!)  I’m thinking this is gonna become a THING with me. Who knows, maybe in time, I’ll start my day by thinking only about the awesomeness that lies before me! So, here we go (in no particular order):

  • $5 Sunflower bunch at Whole Foods. (Need I say more?!)
  • A ray of Amazing Grace, via a text from a friend. He’s been missing God in his life and has decided to take his family back to church … for all of them. He wants to focus on what’s most important. AND, He chose ME to share this with!  I mean … how blessed am I?!!!  (#VERYBLESSED)
  • Sunshine, gentle breezes and spring flowers in bloom. It. Simply. Doesn’t. Get. Any. Better.
  • Catching up with my sister (where we both talk too fast and too much because we have tons of catching up to do and never enough time!)
  • Surprise gifts from my sister from my favorite store! (#Anthropologie)
  • A really inspiring digital marketing webinar with creative thinkers (completely re-energized my right brain!)
  • Discovering that Whole Foods has freshly brewed iced tea on tap, all of the time, for $1.49! (OMG! If you know me, this is pretty huge! <insert angels singing> )
  • Setting up my new night stand that I ordered online. I saved my pennies for this baby for quite a while, so it was pretty sweet to tuck all my books and DVDs into it.
  • It’s my Fri-YAY today! (Working from home tomorrow.)
  • This song. Playing over and over in my car, because of these words:

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless.

Good night, precious peeps! Remember — God is good all the time. xo
