Im sure you all have heard the saying “it’s the little things that count”. I don’t know about most people, but to me that quote is absolutely true. In life we tend to over look the small things done for us, given to us, shared with us. We tend to take them for granted because most people want too much. I have learned that those little things by far are better than the “big things”. Not that the big things don’t matter, however the small things let you learn to appreciate both.
Personally, the little things make my world go round. Like you know I love Carmel macchiatos for breakfast and every morning you get me one. Not because you have to, but because you know that’s what I need to get my day started. Like most people I use to take those kind of things for granted, although now I know better.
I love the little things. The small kisses when we first wake up, the cuddles we share throughout the night, and the cute names you call me during the day. My significant other is my best friend and without her and her “little things” my life would feel empty, small, shallow.
She has helped me not only with dealing with my bipolar disorder, but teaching me how to live a better lifestyle; I’m forever grateful to her ( even though sometimes I have a hard time showing it). I hope she knows. Life wouldn’t be the same without her, and I hope together our lives are better than ever.
Today I am feeling happy, I am feeling like my best friend and I are unstoppable. Her not being by my side makes this disorder that much harder. So, thank you love. Thank you for loving me, and thank you for those “little things” I so badly need.
I hope you all have some type of support system to get through this disorder because doing it alone is critical. It is the hardest thing ever, and I know because before her I wouldn’t let anyone in. That is not the right way to get about things. The bigger your support system is, the better chances you have at maintaining a healthier lifestyle. It is proven with any illness. Just google it.
Anyways, today I feel grateful and I hope everyone suffering finds something in their lives to feel grateful about. This disorder sucks ass, but there is light at the end of that dark tunnel. You just have to want to find it.
Have a blessed Wednesday everyone. Stay strong and appreciate those “little things”.
