Today instead of being mad about waking up so early I’m going to shake off my initial grumpiness and think about gratitude instead.
Gratitude for my sweet little family, and our faraway loved ones, and our nearby new friends. Gratitude for 3 healthy little ones. Thankful for my health and my husband and my dogs and all the little things I’m finding joy in every day – the dandelions turning to globes of wonder that my children blow, the puddles they splash in, the little things that bring them delight. One day it’s splashing in puddles, the next it’s looking back on an idyllic childhood.
It can be hard to focus on the things we are grateful for, but whenever we do we (almost instantly) zoom into a more positive mentality. Keeping a journal of little things that we are thankful for is a tried and tested (and true!) way to re-center.
I like to focus on the little things.
Because the little things have a funny way of turning into big things. 💛💛💛💛 Today, let your kids stop to splash!
