Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in everyday
– Alice Morse Earle

This is a quote I really like. Everyone has a bad day from time to time. It usually starts when your alarm goes off in the morning and you really don’t want to get up. You finally do get up and go to work, the train is cram-full, it starts raining, you didn’t save the document you worked on for hours, …

But suddenly someone compliments you on your shoes or your blouse, or you walk by a chocolaterie, decide to go in and buy the best pralines you ever
had, … having a good laugh, or you walk into a friend you hadn’t seen for way too long, you get home where you can settle down on the sofa in the arms of the one you love, …

These are the little things that can make your day, even though they may fade next to everything that happens in a day. But we have to take the time to appreciate these little moments, because these are the ones that make us happy, these are the ones that make us realize what we love about life, who we love in this life.
These are the moments we need to cherish.

So, take the time to enjoy and cherish these moments, and do this every day.

Lots of love,
Laura

Be okay with not knowing for sure what might come next, but know that whatever it is you will be okay

I chose this quote to share with you today, because this is something I have to tell myself from time to time. I like to organize and knowing what will happen next. I like to prepare every little thing in advance so that everything can just go quietly its way. I have to admit that things almost never go as planned. The train arrives too late, you forget your keys or phone, someone can’t make it on time due to traffic,… And unfortunately, you can’t always have a plan B.

I learned to live with the idea that I cannot plan everything everyday, and things do turn out okay. Even if I get home two hours later or even if I have to wait for more than an hour because I missed my train. It is as it is. And I have to say that it is easy to stress about insignificant things and sometimes I still do. But life is much easier when you don’t. You will be happier without worrying about things that are not worth it.

So I am still learning to let it go and I think it will be a never-ending learning process but I am happy to tell you that I am definitely learning… while keeping that little phrase in my mind.

What do you think about this?

Lots of love,
Laura
