yup, i put my backpack down, unzipped it, grabbed my ipad, opened instagram, and snapped a picture. then i leisurely walked to the bus, and got on, plus i got my favorite seat on the bus :)
so, what kind of lesson did i learn today?
it was a pretty simple lesson. but one that has been on my mind since 7:30 this morning. one that made me say "okay Heavenly Father, i get it. i really do." life has been stressful, between school, and friends, i have been ready to pull my hair out. i've been going, going, going, going. this sunrise taught me that i need to slow down, and enjoy the simple things in life. it taught me that there is a new abundance of hope every morning, when you get out of bed and choose the right path. life may not be perfect, but that's okay, it wouldn't be fun if it was perfect.
i would have missed the sunrise this morning if i had woken up on time. i would have missed learning this lesson. i could have been really upset that i overslept. i could have been very negative and ornery and believe me, i wanted to be. but i chose to be positive. and i chose to take the time, to enjoy the little things in life. so..here ya go, enjoy the simple things!
