Thinking Big{ger}

Hey friends! Happy Super Bowl Sunday! I'm watching the commercials as I work on this post during the game. Ha! I have a new blog hop post for you all - the topic is Think Bigger. 

It's easy - can be very easy really - to get lost in our little world. We can get consumed by the details, appointments, recipes planned for dinners this week, crossing everything off our list by the end of the day. It's easy with all of our responsibilities to keep blinders on, focused only on ourselves. To me, thinking big is reminding ourselves that for one, God is our Savior, that we are here on earth to glorify Him and fulfill the life He's given us. For two, to serve others. We never know what's going on in someone else's life. I think of this often at stores I go to - some people get so snappy with cashiers, etc., and I can't help but think - you don't know who she is, what may be going on in her life outside these doors. Maybe it's great! And that's great - but maybe it isn't. Either way, she deserves respect and kindness, even if you don't agree with her companies policy, or how fast she's checking people out. 

Basically, pausing to remind ourselves we serve out God and His people while we're here on earth. Trust me, I'm not perfect at this. I'm a pretty empathetic person, so I do think of how things make others feel fairly often, but it's easy to get so distracted in my own mind and not see it. 

Let's love our God and those around us! It's cliche, but how great could this world be, really truly, if we smile more to others, give ten compliments per day to people, PRAY for those we come in contact with, those we don't get to see as often as we'd like. Those people may in turn do the same, and we can make a difference with these simple things. Let's be aware of it this week! I'd love to hear in the comments, on Instagram, on Facebook, or commenting on this blog post, ways you like to do this, or ideas you have.

Psst- In case you missed them, I've posted some videos to the blog of how I use essential oils for tension related head pain & when I feel winter crud coming on. If you already have your oils, I hope these vids help you use them! If you don't have your oils yet, what are you waiting for?! ;)
