This is what I came home to tonight. My sweet husband put up lights and as I approached the house, I realized they were actually our pretty, sparkly trees in the distance. It made me purely happy.
I've been thinking about something that chrissie in belgium pointed out from my last post. I had mentioned that I wanted to save up the times I felt good and place them in pretty bottles, to use when I'm not feeling as good. Well she wisely said that maybe the point isn't to save the good stuff in the blue bottles, but rather to NOTICE the blue bottles a little more in the first place. And she's right. Noticing more of the good that's around, everywhere, is really a great way of keeping the balancing act a little bit more on the positive side.
So here's to noticing more, like the wonder and delight of simple white lights on a tree in winter. So lovely. And thanks to chrissie for the reminder.
