When things don’t go the way I expect, or I get caught up in the stresses of everyday life it is sometimes hard for me to shake it. Really I don’t know why it is so easy to get caught up in the small bumps life hands us. I feel like I have gotten better, but sometimes I just can’t brush things off as easily as I would like.
Today I was handed a bigger bump in my road. Big bumps do a good job of making everything else seem so petty. The big bumps make me realize how much I have as opposed to what I don’t have. It makes me realize how much is going right instead of how much is not going right.
I don’t want the big bumps to make me realize how blessed I am, I want to live out that realization everyday. I don’t want to miss out on the greatness of life just because the road gets a little bumpy.
