The past few weeks have felt a little overwhelming. There has been a lot going on in our world and while much of it has filled my heart with happiness, I’ve also been bought to tears.
This year I pledged to keep it simple, to stop overcomplicating, overanalysing and if I’m being honest, to stop overreacting. It’s a work in progress, but compared to where I was a year ago, there has definitely been improvement. I can now identify when I’m starting to revert to my old behaviours and I know what I need to do to pull myself back into line. I’m learning to accept what is out of my control and embrace what is. I’m learning to keep doing the things that make both myself and my family happy, because at the end of the day that is what is most important.
Here is what is on my mind this week…
Making : Plans for our day, I want to enjoy this early Spring weather.
Cooking : Deciding what to have for breakfast, I’m stuck in a rut and need some new ideas.
Drinking : Coffee…. well that was a no brainer!
Reading: Your Best Year Yet by Kelly Exeter – for the third time in less than a week! It’s really hit home with me and each time I read it, I take something else away from it.
Wanting: To go outside for a walk in the beautiful morning sunlight.
Looking: Forward to cuddles with both of my boys this morning.
Playing: Different scenarios out in my mind.
Deciding: What our plans for the future are.
Wishing: It was easy….
Enjoying: Another beautiful sunrise
Waiting: To hear the boys crying out, letting me know they are awake.
Liking: That I feel organised for ProBlogger!
Wondering: Why bad things happen to good people.
Loving: Watching the boys play with their Nan while she stays with us.
Pondering: My next step.
Considering: Our options.
Watching: The sun begin to lighten the night sky.
Hoping: for good news for a wonderful friend.
Noticing: A subtle change in my mindset.
Knowing: I need to stop making excuses – I’m responsible for taking control of my life.
Thinking: About what makes me smile.
Feeling: Sad about the ‘what could have been’.
Sorting: Out my wardrobe, my task for the day.
Getting: Into a new routine. Already I can see the benefits.
Disliking: The 60 minutes interview with Baby Gammy’s parents. I couldn’t watch the whole thing and had to turn the TV off in disgust.
Opening: My mind to new possibilities and letting go of what was holding me back.
Giggling: Watching the boys become best mates.
Feeling: Happy and sad at the same time.
