Slice of Life: Putting Things Aside 25 of 31
The change in plan, makes me have to look a little harder and search a little deeper. Despite the lack of accompishment, I tried to look forward. I had an appointment for a much needed haircut. Happiness wasn't found in having someone else fight with my curls to straighten my hair. It wasn't found in finally being able to eat something. It wasn't found in the sight of dogwoods finally in bloom or in mountains and rolling clouds playing together in the evening sky.
Tonight happiness was found in being able to set the list aside and focusing on things that matter most. Sometimes we have to give ourselves a little space, a little room for error. Sometimes just being able to take things as the come to us is the best way to find happiness. There's beauty in clouds too.
For the month of March I will be participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge hosted at Two Writing Teachers. It will be a busy month of writing, commenting, and learning with this community. This year I've decided to try to focus my writing around happiness. Stop by today's link up to join the conversation or find some great reading.
