Sometimes it's the little things...

Today is one of those days. We all have them. Days where it seems like you can't take the weight of one more thing. Whether you're religious or not, everyone has faith in something...everyone needs something to believe in. I believe that having something to believe in makes us better equipped to deal with everyday life. I grew up in the mormon church, and although I have spent the last few years inactive, I still hold onto my faith. My belief that god, in his infinite wisdom, has a plan for me. My life is not tragic, there are many people that are far worse off then I am. But there are times when all the little things turn into something huge and heavy. I am for the most part an optimist. A few bumps in the road are rarely something I can't handle because I believe that things will work out as they were meant to. For some reason my heart chose today to reach it's breaking point. God really can't expect me to sort through it all, right? Ha ha. I just keep telling myself that there is a plan. Even if I don't have a clue....someone does.
Well, the point of my midnight rant is this....
There are people in your life, people around you who need you. You may not be able to readily see it because they have not suffered any great tragedy. They suffer mostly in silence. Not wanting to burden others. Reach out to one of them today. Even if it's just to offer a smile, or a hug, or even an offer to just listen. With just one kind act, you will help to ease the weight of all the little things. Bring a little sunshine to someones day...and ever the optimist...it will make your day too!
