Thankful With & For The Little Things

If you ask me, being thankful with and for the little things takes intentional living and learning. Sometimes it’s by choice, and other times by force.

For some people, this may come easy… and for others, not so much.

Regardless of what side of the fence you are on, we can all agree that there are many benefits to taking a moment to focus on the simplicity of life.

Throughout my personal journey, I have been met with many chances, opportunities, and experiences that have made me reflect on what is really important – especially once I had children.

Becoming a parent has a funny way of navigating your path to one that makes you do a lot of reflecting – both inside and out… especially about things, or the lack thereof.

In all honesty, I often question YHVH about the things in my life. The answers to those questions usually lead to a major wake up call about my actions because of said things.

Needless to say, there is always work to be done.

Every attempt to turn selfishness into selflessness will take more than simply recognizing that my perspective of the little things needs a constant adjustment.

It takes a mixture of showing and telling seasoned by practical application. And this, my friend, is what I want to share with you.

I want to share how my family manages to live a minimalist lifestyle, how I finally arrived at having peace about it, and the impact it makes on our family as a whole.
