Mindful Monday: Little Things

mindful monday

I often joke about having teenagers in the house, and I’m sure everyone can relate to that at some point – the drama that never ends! But it’s not all raging hormones and family battles, and it’s important to remember, and even marvel at, the little things. Those declarations of love that equate to sunshine on a cloudy day. Every time one of my daughter’s leaves me a note, a few simple lines to remind me how much I’m loved – it fills me with unadulterated joy. I’m often overwhelmed by how thoughtful they are, and each message is a treasure.

Then there are letters, those gems that are always welcome – especially when they fall on the mat with a delightful little thud. An indication that, behind the envelope, there are words meant only for us. Whenever I receive a letter it brightens my day and I’m thankful. We may lead busy lives, but we’re reminded constantly how fortunate we are – even when the going gets tough.

As Colleen trusted me with the Mindful Monday message today, and because I really enjoy her glorious infographics, I’ve created one for you all. Just a few ideas on how you can inject a little joy and share your messages of gratitude.

Thanks again for stopping by. If you have any more ideas, or just want to talk about your experience giving and receiving notes, please leave them in the comments.
