Soulful sunday- The little things that bring the greatest joy

Life has its ups and downs, there are days that are wonderful and others that I can’t wait to end. All in all, I think that it is important to focus on the good things in life and not let problems get me down. I try to remember that even on my worst days, there is someone going through something far worse. So in the spirit of optimism, here is a list of things that I am thankful for and that move me. These aren’t listed in any order, more just as they came to mind and I filtered through some thoughts and wrote others down. My life is not perfect, far from it, but I want my focus to be on things that I do have rather than those I don’t and things that are right instead of what’s wrong.  So here goes…
