We are all dealing with a lot, managing a lot, have a lot going on. I was about to fall asleep tonight thinking of all of the little things that I have going on and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants crossed my mind. I knew there was a line in the first book about stringing together the little things. I made a mental list of all of the little things that I have going on and I thought to myself, “How lucky am I”. How lucky am I that I am being granted so many fantastic opportunities, have people whom I love and adore and who love me right back. How lucky am I that I am entering my final semester of graduate school in a few days and I have things to worry about like: getting a job, missing my cohort post-graduation, and keeping up with my goals. I am blessed beyond belief.
In the upcoming months, when I start to get caught up with everything that I have going on, I am going to think of this quote:
“Being happy isn’t having everything in your life be perfect. Maybe it’s about stringing together all the little things like wearing these pants or getting to a new level of Dragon’s Lair – making those count for more than the bad stuff.” The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Don’t forget to string together all your little moments.
