Reminding myself about what is important

It’s hard not to try to cram every moment

of significant importance into every day.

I would argue it’s even harder to stop and appreciate

what others may gloss over as insignificant.

I woke up today and, although sleep deprived,

I know I have my loved ones still here with me.

I have a house and a dog.

I have a car to take me to the job I am blessed to keep.

I choose to remember that my earnings

do not translate into my value.

The quality of relationships greatly outweighs

the quantity of casual connections.

I am loved.


This is the eighth (#8) in a series of 100-word posts I plan to write. 

My ultimate goal is to create 100 of these 100-word posts in no set time frame. Thanks for following along!

    I needed to read this today and it’s my suspicion that others may as well. Thanks, Heidi.


      I’m so glad that it resonates with others besides just me. Thanks for reading and commenting.


    “Casual connections“

    I chew on that one all the time, and still can’t come to terms with it…


      I know you do and I’ve enjoyed reading about your observations. Thanks for stopping by….enjoy what I assume will be nice weather for you today. 🙂
