The point of this notebook, in my mind, was to have a space where I kept a record of what I'm thankful for. The good things. The great things. The things that weren't so great, but something good came out of it. The people and relationships I'm grateful for. The events that happened that made me smile.
The second piece of the notebook was a place for me to write my concerns. My worries. What's frustrating me. My hope was that I write those things down and get them out of my mind. Of course, the worries and concerns don't disappear just like that. They don't magically go 'poof!' just because I write it in a pretty pen in a notebook. But the act of identifying those concerns, giving them a name, seems important. I started this over a week ago and only have a couple entries. But that's okay. Eventually it's something I hope to do every other day or so.
Then on those darker days I can go back and look at all I have to be thankful for. And a place to remember that even though I've written those concerns down, I'm not facing them alone. That God already knows my concerns. And He's with me all the way.
Remember, life is short. So make mistakes.
Learn lessons. Live life the best you can, live it to the fullest.
Because many things in life can wait... but The Sunset Won't.
