Every day we should stop to really think about our true gifts, especially the ones we don’t always recognize but are right there too.
Tonight I challenge you to think about something or someone who is bugging you. And then I want you to turn your thoughts around and think about why you’re lucky to have that person or that particular problem. Try and list three things you’re thankful for about your current situation. Maybe even write down your thoughts so you can see your gratitude on paper. See if your feelings change after you practice gratitude. It works for me.
Count your blessings, not your gaps. What we focus our attention and minds on is what we create.
Happy Thanksgiving BeLoveRs! I am happy that we have each other.
I hope you enjoyed your family and friends, ate good food, and found some time to relax and play.
I am thankful for the time spent just being together today with my loved ones. We went on a hike together before the big family meal and survived the 80+ degree heat this morning.
Life is good.
I love summer. It’s my favorite season.
I love the unstructured nature of it with flexibility and togetherness and ice cream and water play until I don’t anymore and I long for the next season to bring back a breath of fresh air and structure again and some alone time for ME!! Have I told you that I haven’t worked out hardly at all this summer? Maybe that’s why I feel cranky and fat!
I never look forward to the fall and the early morning alarm clock and demands for lunches to be made and forms to be filled out and homework to be completed. I don’t miss that part at all.
I do look forward to having an expected routine again and to have the kids separated in different schools and not bickering with one another or trying to get out of chores or manipulating a way and finding or begging for a reason to have more screen time.
I’m done. I’m baked.
I’m ready and thankful for all the teachers that care for and teach my babies every week day and give me a break. I love you!! And I love my kids and our wonderful life journey we’re sharing…I’m just ready for them and I to go out and learn by ourselves and to come back and share our experiences maybe over dinner and maybe not all the hours in between if you know what I mean.
School starts in less than two weeks, but who’s counting? Are you ready too?
