Feeling Restless.

I’ve been feeling restless.  There’s really no other way to put it.

I’ve hugged my husband no less than one hundred times in a matter of days.  Because he’s here.  And I’m lucky.  And there’s no logic to say why he is here and others aren’t but that’s where we are.  So I’ll stop typing and hug him again. 

It’s not unhappiness, it’s not discontent, it’s more just a feeling of being somewhere in between.  And we’ve all been here – dealing with the emotions of why our lives play out one way and others’ another.

Sometimes it’s a very apparent realization that our life isn’t hard.  I mean by any real sense.  We have days where it’s tough to pay a bill or where the synergy from our wedding must have been left in Iowa.  But, when you see people in every direction around you either passing through a real rough patch, passing by with little recognition of the person they have become or just passing on, perspective takes over. 

But the happiness and contentment in life are real too and sometimes I have to remind myself to enjoy them.  Because the rough patches will return and there will be moments when our actions are unrecognizable but at the end of the day it’s an honor to be here, no matter where we are! 

So, take a minute to smile at a stranger and pay your bit of happiness forward.

And if you need a little help, here are a few things that made me smile this week…
