Remember how I told you guys a little while ago that one of my stress buster tactics is writing – that I’ve started keeping a journal. I’m doing pretty well to be honest. I don’t commit to writing every day … it’s not supposed to be a chore – it’s supposed to be my escape. And I think it’s worked .. although, sometimes I still find myself picking up the phone for advice – but seriously, what else are family and friends for?!?!
This morning, as I drank my coffee – I sat down to write. And there and then, I made a conscious decision that today – instead of complaining about the poop that floats around life … I’m instead going to make a list of everything that I’m thankful for. I felt better after seeing how long my list was!! Some of the things I included ;
- Waking up this morning to a warm happy home
- Getting to kiss my husband goodbye every morning while he’s still semi-asleep
- Hearing my mom laugh
- Being healthy
- Having a job
- Living in a city that’s safe enough, where I can walk down the street without worry
- Best friends that laugh me out of being stressed
- Good hot chocolate
I read a hashtag on Instagram a little while ago that I completely fell in love with … it was #TooBlessedToBeStressed – LOVE IT!! Sometimes, we just need to acknowledge that just existing is something kind of fantastic !!
I’m glad you exist … I like you!!
And you should you glad that you exist … you’re pretty gnarly!!
Good pep talk peeps … have a lovely Wednesday. I’m sprinkling love all over your world today <3
