The Little Victories {Pint-Sized Moments}

If you've read my blog for awhile, you might know that I have shared "Pint-Sized Moments", which were funny/awkward circumstances that come up in my life as a result of being 4'8". Believe me, there is a lot of awkward that comes with being my height, and it was fun to share those things with you.

But as the heart and purpose of my blog has changed a little bit, I've decided to revamp "Pint-Sized Moments" in a new way! And I'd love for you to join me!

I've mentioned previously that some days, you just have to celebrate the little victories.
On particularly frustrating days, it's too easy for me to lose perspective and throw myself a pity party. But when I make the effort to be grateful for and celebrate the little "wins" along the way, it's incredible how my attitude shifts and how much broader my perspective becomes.

Maybe it's been a super long day of running errands with your tantrum-y toddler, but you can't help but swoon over the fact that the he taught himself to throw his arms up and shout "hooray!" whenever he is excited.

Maybe the disheveled state of your attic has been causing you to cringe for months, and you finally found the time (in the form of a babysitter) to clean that puppy up.

Whatever the scenario may be, I want to get better at celebrating these little victories, these rays of sunshine in my days. I don't want the difficulties to cloud my view of the beauty in front of me.

This isn't a time for me to brag; it's a time for me to be grateful while also being real.
This isn't a time for me to fake a perfect life; it's a challenge to open my eyes to the little blessings that God places in my life.
And I hope this is a chance for you to look at your day or your week, and recognize the little joys and victories in you life, no matter how pint-sized (or huge!) they may be.

Next week I'm kicking things off with a Pint-Sized Moments link-up! 
Tuesday, May 21st, I'll open up my blog for you to share the pint-sized victories from recent days.
Don't feel pressured to come up with something amazing - just share your real life. The point of sharing with each other is to encourage one another, give glory to God for these sweet moments, and to help give us a greater perspective, especially on our hard days.

(And just so you know, this is open to people of all heights :) And to all non-moms and moms alike.)
