My thought for today as quoted from my Yogi tea bag. I love it!
As part of my Happiness Project, I’ve been keeping a gratitude journal, but I’ve fallen behind. So today, I am picking up the pen again. It’s great to be reminded of how lucky I am and to keep things in perspective when I’m facing a challenge!
It really is the little things. A hug from my boys, tea made by my husband, ballet class . . .some days I have so many moments that I want to remember, I don’t even get to write them all down. But I do spend the day trying to be mindful and appreciative.
Of course, this doesn’t mean I’m cheerful and perky all day – my kids still don’t listen to me when I ask them to stop bugging each other, there are still terrible drivers everywhere and petty annoyances, but focussing on the best of the day seems to make it easier to forget the rest.
Yesterday . . . my dishwasher. I am lucky to be able to turn it on when I go out and come home to clean dishes – allowing me to spend time with my family instead!
Today . . . I’m grateful for a much-needed morning shower and clean hair!
