Just wanting to pop on quickly and say hi, and write about something that perhaps many could use today. Often times, especially now being the holidays for a lot of people, we dwell on what’s going wrong in our lives and how things could be better #amiright?? Who is missing from Christmas dinner that we wish were there, I wish I had xx more dollars to get Johnny what he really wants for Christmas, I wish I had a different job, my bonus was sh*t…jelly of the month club???
What if today, just for a moment, we hit pause. Can we, ask ourselves to release those feelings for a couple minutes and let in the good? Can we allow ourselves to feel the joy in all the good we do have right in front of us. Let’s make a list! Grab a piece of paper and write out everything you love about your life right now.
My loving husband
Their education, and the fact that they love to go to school.
I am grateful for my family’s health.
This baby growing inside me, and the the little kicks I feel that remind me of this beautiful pregnancy.
I am grateful for our home, it’s so cozy this time of year. We are lucky to have heat and basic things that many people around the world do not have.
I am grateful for helping those 5 families earlier this week. We collectively as a community supported them in a time of dire need and what better in life is there than that!?
Speaking of community, I am SO grateful for all of you. You are the reason that I am able to stay home and provide for my family. The incredible blessing that is this blog and beyond is so much more than I could have ever dreamed of, while I have you, THANK YOU!!
I am grateful for my parents, my brother and his wife, and Brian’s family. There is so much unconditional love and support between us that makes me feel safe and like I have a tribe of people at my back who will always be there.
My friends. I am grateful to have a solid group of women in my life that I can talk to about anything, and who I have so much fun being around.
I could go on and on…as I’m sure you can as well. Let’s keep this list tucked away somewhere and pull it out when we need a reminder, k??
Have an amazing day today, and Happy Holidays my friends!!
