  3. @Chele – It makes me so happy to know that this little post worked wonders for you. I hope with a little change in perspective you can enjoy the rest of your week to the fullest.

    @Jay – Thank you Jay that’s very sweet. It is pretty special and I’m in no rush to tidy it up :)

  4. Love this post! It’s a great reminder that we can look at the world — and any situation — however we want to. If we want to see the bad, we will. If we want to see the good, we will. So look for the positive! :)

  5. @ Positively Present – Exactly!! Look for the positive and that’s what you’ll see. I’m glad you liked this little post :)

  6. Love your perspective on this. I too see mess when I look around. I think of what an awesome summer we’ve had and how I’m really not sorry that I let things go. Things can be put back. Time with the littles can’t.

  7. @ Jill – That is just so beautifully said! “Things can be put back. Time with the littles can’t.” Beautiful! Thank you!

  8. Okay, reminders about life like this one is why I read your blog. THANK YOU!! Love this one. Abbie

  9. @ Abbie – Thank you so much that’s very kind of you! I’m glad you liked it :) Have a great day/evening.

  10. What a great perspective, Sherri, I really appreciate this post.

    I’m training myself to recognize “should” as a red flag when I say it; it means my preconceptions are showing.

    But I don’t always verbalize my “shoulds,” and so they slip under the radar.

    Next time I see a mess I’ve made, I’m going to take a page from your book and look at it as the good things it is evidence for.

    Thanks!

  11. @ David – That’s great David I’m glad you appreciate it! I’m starting to do the same thing when it comes to the “shoulds” of life as soon as the word leaves my mouth I think yes but why “should” it be a certain way? Who says? It just is. Getting hung up on how you think a scenario should play out only makes you really unhappy.
    Thanks for stopping by :)

  12. I see a 1/2 glass of orange juice, a blue sky, and in front of me, a lovely post.

    I see something on your site that other women (and men) out there are wishing and hoping for. You make me tremendously happy for your ability to see what you see, as opposed to whining about the “mess” you have – which isn’t a mess a all, but a life filled with love.

    Peace (and happy to see you!!),

  13. I see too much to type it all…will get too tired;)…but your post has given me a sense of..”I am not alone in my UNMESS”..:)
    Its so nice that you can see the positivity in the situation…I have gotta start learning to see like you:)
    As you said..things can be put away later…but time once gone with our little ones never comes back.

  14. @ Lori – Welcome! Good to see you as well :) Don’t get me wrong I still do have days where I whine about the mess but yesterday morning for some reason I just *saw* it differently. It was a really lovely feeling.

    @ Zeenat – lol You certainly aren’t alone. It doesn’t happen all the time but when it does, seeing things in a more positive light (even a mess) can really set a great tone for the day!

  15. Sherri,

    Life is all about how we choose to see it. And it is our choice to make. Thanks for the perspective, especially in such a challenging world!

    Thank you for a truly lovely post, Sherri!

  17. @Peter – Welcome! I’m glad you liked the article. Everything in life is a choice including our perspective on situations. Thanks for your comment.

    @Mary – Hi Mary thank you for the lovely message I’m really glad you enjoyed this one. :)

  18. I have such a hard time getting past the mess, so I thank you for this. It seems that there are always dishes in the sink or on the counters. I am going to try to view this differently. Dirty dishes means that I have taken the time to cook something to nourish my family and that playing after eating is more fun and memorable than soap and a sponge.
