Life is messy and complicated. Some days, it’s easier to see the rainbows behind the clouds than others. But life is happening now. It’s easy to say “I’ll wait for tomorrow to do this.” Or, “I’ll go visit when things get better, easier, simpler.” The truth is, life will always be messy, complicated and busy. Can you pause life’s harried pace, if only for a moment, and find the good?
It’s up to us to find joy in life’s little moments. Look for sunshine on a rainy day. Search—even if you need to look sideways—for moments of happiness amidst the sadness. And stop to take a breath in the middle of the hubbub. Because in all of those moments are hidden gems of joy that bubble up to the surface. And those moments are yours to treasure.
