Sometimes, I know myself really well.
Do you ever have those moments?
For example, when you find a mini cookies and cream chocolate bar in your camera bag because it’s your favorite, and you placed it there knowing you’d enjoy finding it as a treat later.
Do you ever do that? Leave yourself a little gift that you find later, and love yourself for it?
We all have those insecurities that make us love ourselves a little less. Maybe that sounds harsh, but I’m calling it as it is.
So when I have those moments when I see myself as a friend, who fills her own cup, who surprises herself, who encourages, who says “hey, I know you, and you’re bigger and better than those nagging voices,” it makes me softer towards myself.
Today, that little reminder came in the form of this leaf. A little splash of fall color that reminded me that change can be beautiful, and that made me smile.
The best part is where I found it – my wallet.
It’s more than likely been there for over a month, hiding in the coin purse (an area I never go), just waiting for the day God would have me open it, just when He knew I’d need it the most.
Tiny pleasures, friends. Sometimes the best days are made of them.
