I'm the kind of person who is really impressed by the little things.
You know, the things that don't cost any money,
just a few moments of time.
Remembering my favorite things.
Giving me a kiss goodnight.
Asking about something I've only mentioned once, but knowing it was important.
Little texts to say hello.
A nice card in my mailbox.
An invitation to be a part of the team.
Always giving me a kiss on the way out the door.
I'm also the kind of person who is easily hurt by the little things.
Small actions, little words... I take them to heart.
I am often told I'm high-strung,
It's so disheartening when I'm called those things.
It gives me a pain deep inside my stomach that no consoling words can help.
It's something I'm working on.
This week, I am attending an Encounter at my church.
As I take a fast from Facebook, Twitter and social media,
a break from my daily life,
and a step away from my comfort zone—
I'm going to focus on these things.
To ask for help with my sensitivity.
To ask to be more care-free, not so high-strung.
To ask to not be so easily broken.
When I pray this week,
the one thing I need to remember is that
I can't hope to change others,
but I can change myself.
