Weekend Wisdom: Let’s stop using broken measuring sticks to determine our worth.
I’m focusing on the sweet things.
Read the news or jump on social media and you’ll probably find something that makes you want to shake your fists or feel upset about. Then again, if you are looking for something to shake your fists at or feel upset about, it won’t be hard to find … in the news, on social media, in the people around you or even within you. But what if you start looking for the sweet things first?
Some of the sweetest things I’ve experienced over the last few weeks include …
- The little poetry box above. Does it get any better? You are out for a walk and come across a poetry box with the sweetest invitation to take a poem or leave a poem. We need more of these simple pleasures.
- A wonderful conversation with this woman and this one.
- Meeting a new neighbor and her adorable Golden Doodle and having a conversation from across the street.
- Flower delivery.
- Starting a new book.
When I look for the hard things I find them, and when I look for the sweet things, I find them too.
