“The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.”
This quote popped up on my screen yesterday and I found myself nodding in agreement.
2014 was a year filled with change and much of the time I felt unsettled. I spent so much time searching for the security I once had that I forgot to pay attention to those small, nameless moments.
As I enter 2015 with a few more things than I had last year – a new job, a great group of friends in this still new city, I was suddenly reminded of what I had been taking for granted all that time.
I forgot about the daily phone calls from my mom telling me everything was going to be okay.
I forgot about the nights my boyfriend took me out for drinks to celebrate some small success that hardly mattered to the outside world.
I forgot about the hopeful messages and comments left right here on this blog as I was struggling to find my place.
I forgot to say thank you. Even if we haven’t met face-to-face, you being here means a lot. It has kept me going, it has made me smile, and it matters.
