We are halfway through the PFO year and I wanted to share about the journey so far, what I’ve learned, and how PFO has impacted me. If I had to sum it up in one word, it’d be amazing, but I’ll just go ahead and give you the details. Through all of the buddy events and committee meetings, I have continued to discover and learn to enjoy the little things in life. From the gleam of the sun to the tiny quirks in a person’s personality, it all just seems to make sense. I don’t really know how to explain the feeling that I am getting besides simply saying “everything makes sense now.” It’s amazing what looking for the little things can do. As soon as I started appreciating the details, everything started to change. It suddenly became easier to find the good in the seemingly bad, to find light in the darkness. So in the new year, I put forth a challenge: every once in a while, take a step back and look for the little things in life. I promise that you won’t be disappointed.
