The last couple weeks have been tough. I’ve been pretty stressed out. But this week I’ve had some awesome things happen.

Sky at Soccer September 3 2013

The first thing this. It’s what the sky looked like as I left soccer on Tuesday night. It’s it beautiful? It’s amazing how nature has a way of relaxing me. It doesn’t matter if it’s wildflowers in a park, the view of the mountains on a hike, or a sunset, it just makes things better.

Secondly, I’ve mentioned before that I’m taking chemistry. It’s been 12 years since I last took a science class (that was in high school, I managed to avoid science in university). Needless to say, it’s been quite awhile. Most of what I did know has been long forgotten.

I’d been working on the review section of my chem class, and it was tough. I’m doing it online, so for the most part it’s just me and my textbook. When I didn’t understand something I’d leave it and come back to it the next day, and most of the time I’d be able to figure it out. But sometimes I’d still be confused. I hate feeling like I don’t understand something.

I made an appointment (ok, 2 appointments, I had a LOT of questions) with a tutor through the college I’m taking the class through. He was so amazing at explaining things to me in a way that I understood. He said I was asking really good questions. Apparently I was looking pretty stressed out, and he reassured me that some of the stuff I was stressing over I wouldn’t really need to know for the rest of the class. I left both appointments feeling so much better cause I was understanding the stuff I was having trouble with and reassured that they were tough concepts to figure out in the first place.

Then this afternoon I got an email from a friend. She told me she did something (a really wonderful, thoughtful something) for me. She did it right out of the blue too. I hadn’t asked her about it and I wasn’t expecting it at all. It was something only she could have done.

This week reminded me that as crazy as my life gets, good things will always happen right when I need them. It might be as simple as a sunset, someone helping me to understand chem, or a friend doing something just cause.

What’s the last kind thing someone has done for you?
