When I was driving to yoga the other night the lyrics of whatever random song was playing caught my ear…
All the things you take for granted now started out as blessings first.
It resonated with me so much that the second I pulled into the parking lot at the yoga studio I tweeted it because I didn’t want to forget about it. I then thought about it the entire class. It’s one thing to remind yourself to be grateful or count your blessings but I think it’s a totally different thing to look at the things you have and force yourself to remember how much of a blessing they once were even though they may not seem that way now or even may be a hassle at times (owning a house…)
It offered me the perspective I needed on a Sunday evening when I wasn’t feeling overly excited for another week to begin. I’m hoping to carry this thought with me throughout the coming weeks, which are full of lots of busyness and being out of town but also lots of GOOD things (A concert! Bridesmaid dress shopping for my best friends wedding! Mexico!) It’s a good reminder for me to not only count my blessings every day, but count the the things I take for granted in there too.
What quotes have you heard lately that gave you a new perspective?
