-I’m 29 years old.
-I’m healthy and able bodied.
-My mind and memory are intact.
-I’m young enough to enjoy being young, but old enough to have learned from experience.
-I still have time to accomplish goals and dreams.
-I have a lot of wonderful things to look forward to, like watching my children get married and have families of their own, as well as enjoying time with my husband after the kids are out of house.
When I treat life as though every moment is a gift, I learn to focus more on the positive. I am more grateful for the good things, and the bad things don’t seem to affect me as much. The minor every day inconveniences that seem to bog other people down just roll off my shoulders, and I continue on with my day knowing that the next good thing is right around the corner.
Being young, healthy, and able bodied is a gift. Someday I will be physically unable to enjoy the things I take for granted now, and not long after that I will cease to exist altogether. I can’t help but be grateful for this life that I’ve been given.
There is a state park with a beautiful lake and beach not far from where I live. We like to take the kids there as much as possible in the summer. It’s great to have a little paradise nearby.
I feel most generous when I can provide someone with something that they really truly need. A meal, a place to stay, help with a task, someone to watch their kids when something pops up last minute. I can bring forth my most generous self by always being on the lookout for opportunities to help others with such needs, even when the need is not clearly expressed.
Putting away my phone more and being more present. Giving my children my full attention when they have something to tell me. Showing more appreciation to all of the wonderful people in my life.
Kick butt and take names at work, spend time being present with my children, prepare a delicious evening meal for my family, and take time to reflect and be grateful for everything that I’ve been given.
“If Britney Spears survived 2007, you can make it through today”, which is a reminder that even when I think things are tough, many others are facing much worse circumstances, and that my problems are small and quite surmountable in comparison. Plus, a little humor never hurt anybody 😉
I am trying to trust life right now. We are in the process of trying to sell our house right now, and we’ve only had one showing in the past month. We have the perfect new home picked out for our family, but as we cannot afford 2 mortgages, we cannot move until we have sold our current home. We are expecting in August, and I am desperate to get moved and settled before the baby comes. It’s very disheartening to have so little interest in our home, but I am trying to let go and...
I am trying to trust life right now. We are in the process of trying to sell our house right now, and we’ve only had one showing in the past month. We have the perfect new home picked out for our family, but as we cannot afford 2 mortgages, we cannot move until we have sold our current home. We are expecting in August, and I am desperate to get moved and settled before the baby comes. It’s very disheartening to have so little interest in our home, but I am trying to let go and trust that it will sell when it’s meant to sell, and that everything will happen at the pace that it’s meant to happen. Everything works out the way that it’s supposed to, even if it doesn’t seem like it at first.
The excitement to meet my baby girl, literally. With every kick and movement I feel, I get more and more excited for her arrival. I had a scare earlier this week with experiencing painful contractions that sent me to the hospital. I’m glad that my baby is still in my belly and very active and healthy. 3 months to go!
Spending time in nature, traveling, trying new things, making music, performing, teaching, creating, laughing.
