Sometimes my daily pain issues can get overwhelming and add a lot of mental clutter and problems to my life.

 Today's post is a reminder to appreciate the simple things, even if your life isn't always simple.

For example, a few weekends ago, I was visiting my parents' house. I had some stomach pain and decided to take a hot bath to help me sleep. I'm not sure how long I sat in the tub, but it was long enough for the water to go from steaming hot to a chilly temperature.

As I drained the tub, and began to fill it again with hot water, it struck me how immensely privileged I am. First, I was able to even take a bath in the first place. I didn't have to wait more than a few seconds for the water to become hot and it didn't take very long for the tub to fill up. There are people in the world who don't even have a way to clean themselves with a bath, let alone be able to relax in one.

This may sound silly that a bath inspired me, but think about the little things in your life that makes it just that much simpler. You may be surprised by what is taken for granted. I know I was.

Simply Yours,
