then, there are times, when change is a bit slower and you can actually feel it happening.
i had one of those moments today – the slower feel it happening kind of change. like i was stuck in a sam cooke song. except this change was good, or will be, if i let it grow.
funny too that feeling of noticing the change. for me i finally saw myself through someone else’s eyes. finally listened to what they had been telling me all along, and it just clicked. it was a simple action too that prompted everything.
it always is though isn’t? those little things idle things that hit you in the middle of the afternoon. pause for celebration, really. how often can we catch ourselves in that moment? that’s why i’m writing it down. i want to remember that feeling. a half-smile and a twinkle in the eye. unnoticed to the full room i occupied, but heard across the miles.
what was the last thing that made you truly smile?
