What we focus on is where our energy goes. We can either focus on what we don't have, or we can focus on what we do have. Which one will make you feel more content, more positive, more fulfilled?
Today I am focusing on gratitude. I was filled with gratitude this weekend as I looked around and saw all the beauty in my life. 🧞♂️We had a slow, connecting, and nourishing family day yesterday - starting with our new weekly family meeting followed by hours of crafting and sewing. 🎄The fireplace was lit and cheesy Christmas tunes were cranked. N sewed her first dress and it actually fits and looks adorable! 💃My Mom would have been so proud of her and would have rushed out to buy a bunch of fun fabric.💝 My husband cooked dinner, and responded with patience and love when I got mad at him over something stupid. 🤷♂️ I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning working on a new project with a friend, and am so excited about what she and I could create together. 🧚♀️ Today we fulfilled a long overdue promise to take the kids to the indoor waterslides @alpamare_ch . 🧜♀️ As opposed to other times, this time I actually felt genuinely happy to be climbing hundreds of stairs over and over again while wiping the burn of chlorine out of my eyes.🤽♀️ I had such a good time playing with the kids and feeling like a kid myself again! 🤹♀️
What are you grateful for today?
