A Monday morning full of potential and anticipation. The actual demands of the week haven't fully set in and so I feel energetic and optimistic! I allowed myself to sleep in a little this morning (self care) and to take the mess of the weekend and look at is as evidence of a full and busy life. I found myself walking around saying "Happiness is …." and filling in the blanks.
Happiness is the planters and pots that we pulled out over the weekend. I didn't get to them like I had hoped, but they are calling to me and the sun in shining so I'm looking forward to transforming the Winter porch into the Spring one!
Happiness is the evidence that my children are learning (not necessarily to pick up after themselves) to follow through on things that will develop confidence and talents. Note all the sticky flags down the side of the piano (What's up with that?) Someday I will miss this mess — at least that is what I'm telling myself on this Monday morning!!
I challenge you to try this exercise. Pick one morning this week, or next Monday morning and choose to "see" things in a positive light. Snap a few photos and share them on your blog if you have one. You could even create a "Happiness is …." scrapbook page.
Thank YOU btw, for ALL of your responses to my blog poll. I'm scrolling through and reading and feeling very grateful for a global community of friendship and support.
Life is good.
