Day Infinity

Posted in Grace in small things at 6:42 am by ListenMaudy

I really was going to participate in the 365 days of Grace In Small Things. Really. I made it all the way through January, even if just barely. At around day 15, my heart was no longer in it.

When I sit down to think about it, there are so many things that I am thankful and grateful for. I am grateful for everything I have and for all the people in my life. I just don’t think that this exercise is benefiting me in the long run. I get that making small changes in my life will have much bigger impacts than I can imagine, but this isn’t the right small change for me to make.

I do feel a bit like a quitter, but at day 15, I decided that I should make it all the way through January, 31 days. Then I could decide whether this was worth continuing. At this point, I don’t think it is. I don’t feel less bitter or more grateful in my life outside of sitting down to blog, so I think it’s time for me to let it go. And I’m grateful for that!

Wage a battle against embitterment and take part in 365 days of Grace In Small Things.
