I was leaving work today and was taking my time walking to my car. I stopped to read a bumper sticker that said, "The best things in life aren't things." I was repeating that quote to myself as I walked the rest of the way to my car.
Then, I get into my car and turn it on. The radio comes on automatically and, I kid you not, the first words I heard on the radio were, "The best things in life aren't things." It was a song called, I'll Be Waiting, by Michael Franti & SpearHead. I've never heard the song before and of all times for me to hear it, seconds after reading the exact same message on a bumper sticker! Seriously, someone or something was sending me a message! The message was received...
I feel like there is so much in my life that I have been taking for granted lately and this was my wake up call. I get upset easily about stupid things in life, especially when it comes to the traffic I face during my commute.
But because of this amazing message I received today, I am now feeling inspired to make a list of some of the truly important people, not things, in my life.
Our amazing family
My wonderful friends
Our nice neighbors
The awesome people I get to work with every day
The awesome kids I get to see at school every day
The list could go on and on but you get the idea. So thank you, Universe, for giving me this opportunity to sit back and think about all the people in my life that make me so blessed.
