Something to Celebrate

Seven days ago I started a personal improvement challenge and I am so very proud of myself for keeping it up consistently to this point. It also means that this acute episode got seriously serious a week ago but that’s a topic for a whole other post entirely. 

I’m still spoonless so this will be short and sweet. 

Today I am grateful for:

  • The safe arrival of my Belly Buddy’s second baby. Our toddlers are exactly one week apart in age and now she has two under two. She’s a rockstar and I’m so thankful to have her and her family in my life. 
  • The fact that it didn’t rain here until dinner time. BooBoo needs fresh air everyday and to go without makes life very difficult. Today he got to go for a walk with Gramma and it was a big help. 
  • Mom friends. They just “get it” it’s like a sisterhood and I’m proud to be part of it. 

I have continued with the technological random acts of kindness via text and email since I still haven’t left my house. 

This challenge has certainly helped shape my attitude for the better during this flare up. Husby keeps commenting on how upbeat I’ve been despite feeling incredibly ill and taking the time to quiet my mind every day and give thanks for what I have is definitely the source of a more positive attitude. I’m not going to lie, this is still a very difficult thing to deal with but taking the time to express gratitude is a game changer.
