Our little family has been having a rough few weeks- between work and personal stress and lots of illness running through our family, it’s been a doozy… I’m usually the emotional, anxious/crazy one (thank God Steve is my rock!) But even Steve last night looked like he had just had it. Sometimes life is so hard. And then I try to remember, it’s not as bad as it seems.
A few years ago, I heard this little trick to use when you’re feeling defeated and worried and anxious… try to think, ‘will this matter in five years? will this matter in a year? will this matter in a week?’ It kinda puts everything in perspective.
And speaking of perspective… there’s this…
And probably one of my most favorite cartoons of all time, that I currently have hanging over my desk at work.. this (below) truly exemplifies how we really shouldn’t worry so much about the things we need to overcome; turns out it wasn’t that bad after all! (plus, today is the first day is summer!)
