I have days where I get myself all wound up in a knot about silly things that don’t really matter, but I let them bother me. Sometimes I blog about these things and other times I don’t because they’re not even worth the energy to write about. And then, just when I am about to go bonkers over the stupidest thing, someone writes a comment on my blog that cuts to my core and makes me realize that some things aren’t worth stressing over, because in the grand scheme of things, they just don’t matter.
I have written several posts about my sister leaving for Paris for a semester. I am very excited for her, and yet I will miss having her just a car-ride away. A fellow blogger commented on my most recent post about my sister leaving, saying that it brought tears to her eyes over her sister that she lost not so long ago. She thanked me for sharing my story.
Reading that brought tears to my eyes and reminded me how important it is to focus on the things that really matter, like the ones you love and the memories you have shared. Thank you to my blogging friends for reminding me how much there is to celebrate.
