simple pleasures

April 17, 2012


I have had an overwhelming day of gratitude today, I am grateful for the many large things I'm blessed with in my life however I feel as if sometimes I take for granted the simple pleasures that happen in our each and everyday lives. Simple pleasures that seem mediocre and at times unnoticed. However, if they were to ever go missing, lost, or gone all together you would wonder why and how on earth you could have ever taken them for granted for just the slightest second.

Stephanie is an amazing lady that has touched my heart, life, and much more. Her blog is a must read. She is now completely transformed by a near-fatal plane accident {burning the majority of her body}and yet she still chooses to find something to be more than grateful for every single day. She has every right to complain, whine and fuss, however she uses her free agency and chooses not to.

Next time you are faced with a trial, or life seems to be so overwhelming that you don't know how on earth youre going to make it out alive keep in mind that you are not alone, and that there is so much we are blessed with that is so significant. Its easy to pin point all of the flaws, but without the flaws we would all be the same. Sit down, take a step back and take a minute to remind yourself of all of the things you are blessed with each and everyday that most of the time goes unnoticed. 


If you have the time I highly recommend to take a few minutes out of your day to watch this video, you wont regret it. And your heart will be touched, as it did mine. There is so much to be grateful for, take a step back and look around you.
