Although we are only 10 days in to this month, for us so far it is definitely a May of moments. Some great, some not so good, and some down right heart achingly awful.
At times I think it can be easy to focus only on the ‘less than’ moments in life, it is what we naturally tend to dwell on. It takes at times, or so I find, dedicated effort to dwell on the happier moments. But I believe that choosing gratitude and joy as often as we can is important.
So while I don’t want to portray a life that is all sunshine and rainbows all the time, as it is certainly not, I am choosing this moment to use this space as a way to focus on our recent happy moments. I am choosing now to thank God for just how blessed we really are and in those harder moments, which will always come, I am just putting one foot in front of the other and deciding to trust in Him.
Looking forward to focusing on more happy moments in May and I hope you all have plenty too!
What a lovely positive post, Naomi. So true that we seem to moan more than rejoice – and you are right that it is a decision that we make ourselves, whether to focus on the problems in our live rather than thanking God for the many, many blessings that He heaps on us.
