Sometimes I get so bogged down and caught up in all the things that I don't have or that are going wrong (and often who is to blame). It's so easy to do and I so often hear things that come out of my mouth and think "Gosh Zita, give it a rest!" It's often compounded by the feelings and emotions of those around us as well. If we surround oursleves with negative people then it's so easy to become that way as well and sometimes I need a big "things aren't that bad" slap in the face...
Sure there are things in my life that I regret (I don't care what anyone says there are things most of us should regret!) but that doesn't mean they define me.
Sure there are things that I want in my life that haven't happened or that I don't have (Husband, big fat diamond ring, kids being the biggest thing) but when this photo popped up on facebook earlier this week it did make me stop and think. Sometimes it really is the simple things in life and we do need time to stop and smell the roses (and if you are lucky enough, my dad's roses are the best!)
So....what are you thankful for....?
Linking up with Leigh from Six by the Bay again for Thankful Thursday
