Tiny Triumphs

Saturday, June 4, 2016

Have you ever had one of those days where it seems like everything and their twin brothers' cats are stressing you out?

I had one like that recently. And I know that it won't be the last. It's very, very easy to feel overwhelmed when stressful or even just overtly busy days come around.

But here's just one thing I've learned: focus on the tiny triumphs.

What do I mean by tiny triumphs? Well, they can be the little things that can make a dull or overwhelming day that much brighter. They can be things like:

  • Getting a front door parking spot when running an errand
  • Seeing many butterflies fly past you on your commute to and from work
  • Your favorite song coming on the radio, or playing your favorites from a mixtape or your phone
  • Getting a text or a phone call from a friend
  • Texting or calling a friend
  • Enjoying your favorite drink, coffee, or soda during a busy day
  • The sunshine through your car's sun roof
  • Hugging a friend or family member or pet(s)
  • Studying God's Word and finding a verse or passage that convicts you and speaks to you

These are just a few things that can be considered the tiny triumphs in any given day. And the tiny triumphs can build and build and build until you realize that you can in fact conquer the day you are given, there are people who love and cherish you, and everything's going to be A-OK.

Plus - and most importantly - God has your back. Never, ever forget that.


  1. I love this. People should never take anything for granted no matter how small those little thriumps are :)


    1. Thank you so much! :) And I absolutely agree.
