Feel Good Friday: Will You Choose to See the Flowers?

This content may contain affiliate links.

Feel Good Friday is a regular series to give you a smile, a chuckle, or a nugget of wisdom to get your weekend off on the right foot!

There are always flowers for those who want to see them.

Have you ever had one of those weeks where even though nothing major went wrong, you still feel totally drained because about a million minor things did? 

The kind of week where burning dinner on the stove feels like a tragedy, only because it was preceded by three days straight of takeout and you wonder why you even bother trying to make a homemade meal.

The kind of week where trying to be on time to anything seems like a complete waste of effort because you know it is never going to happen.

The kind of week where you lose your patience with your whining toddler every other minute, only to learn he’s had an ear infection and you didn’t realize it (guilty…)

Eventually you throw up your hands and declare that if one more thing goes wrong, you’re just going back to bed. 

I think we all have weeks like that, and they make it really tough to see the beautiful flowers all around us.

We become blind to the sunshine peeking through the clouds.

We fail to notice the kind smiles of strangers.

We start living in flustered-autopilot-mode, and we start looking at our kids without really seeing them

If you had one of those weeks, try to start the weekend with the knowledge that even though you may have missed seeing the flowers the past few days, they’re still there, just waiting to be marveled at and appreciated. And you can choose to start appreciating them right now.

How will you choose to see and appreciate the good stuff this weekend?
