Gratitude is important, even essential. We need to recognize and remember the things in our life that matter, that give us meaning and purpose.
But contentment also requires a daily appreciation of the little things, the aspects of our lives that seem trivial but that bring joy and beauty.
So today, I am grateful for nail polish.
I know, right? But listen, I have two very small daughters, a 3 month old puppy, and a house to manage. Self-care is difficult to fit in. But my nails are something I can do in relatively little time and that I will see constantly thereafter.
What little things do you do to give yourself a boost?
