this has been a particularly rough season for my little family and i – we have had illness come and go these past couple weeks and general discouragement settle in like an unwanted layer of dust over our home.
this morning, i woke up and decided that i cannot let my circumstances determine my happiness any longer. i have been too caught up in the everyday grind that i kinda forgot to look Up.
i thought a good start would be to address my attitude toward the little things first.
such as the dirty dishes.
and how much i dislike washing said dirty dishes
i tweeted about my little attitude shift earlier this morning:
“i have decided to be thankful for these dirty dishes. they represent the family i have to cook for, & the food on our table every day.”
and then proceeded to rock out to some Led Zeppelin and get my kitchen in order.
and what do you know. i actually had fun.
i then rewarded myself with a hot cup of french press and a sit down.
but then i had to get up for some more shots. because…well, because.
and things are looking just a bit brighter.
but now i need to go do some laundry.
wish me luck.
i hope you have found something to be thankful for in your life today. even the little things make a big difference.
