One of my favorite, favorite things about traveling is that I love seeing that there are so many other people on this earth. Tons of unique faces in the airport, on the plane, in the destination city and I’m almost inspired more while walking to baggage claim here in Minneapolis. I am just bewildered at all of these people that I don’t know, that are going places. Tons and tons of others visiting family, work trips, vacations, just living their lives. It’s a beautiful perspective, that there is so much more to this world that just my small surroundings.

When I return home and get back in the swing of things I so often find myself losing that perspective. Losing patience, getting frustrated about what I don’t have or where I am not. Overwhelmed or stressed and I seem to act like God can’t handle my problems, when the truth is. These things are so trivial and that HE is so much bigger. A friend recently recommended to put a silent alarm on my phone that said “grateful for?” that goes off once a day and I either write a word or two down or think on it and it really does help bring me back to earth.

Back to the perspective of being grateful, content and serving whole heartily with what I have in the present moment.

    Wow. I love this image and love the writing even more. The two are beautiful together. Funny thing – I went to bed thinking about you, like I wanted to pick up a phone and call and get some more of you in my life. And then I woke up to this. 😀 I think I’m going to go ahead and set that phone reminder…

    What a fantastic idea!! I get that same ‘perspective’ feeling when I travel. I think it’s why I love traveling so much. Airports are great for people watching.
