These days I’m being taught 2 major lessons on a daily basis.
Patience and gratitude. These 2 lessons are going hand in hand for me. I’ve always been a pretty patient person, but running my own business has brought it to a new level.
Whenever I want to crawl into a hole, or into my bed in the past month, I’m reminded of all the wonderful things I have going in my life. I’m so grateful for so many things, most importantly for my family, friends, health, baby and home.
Patience is teaching me to reflect on what I have going for me.
Patience is teaching me to focus on the positive.
Patience is teaching me to reaffirm my goals and put them out there so I can achieve them.
Patience is teaching me to let go of how I thought things “should be”.
Patience is teaching me that I should always go with my gut and listen to my heart.
My gratitude list. I know I’ve posted about this before, but really, shouldn’t we all talk about this more often?
I’m ridiculously, never-ending, enormously grateful for…
Support from our family. Especially, especially my mom. She never fails to come through for us, even when she’s not asked.
My home. I never thought I could be so grateful for a place to live that I LOVE. I love everything about it from the kitchen to the basement to the driveway to my washer & dryer*. *even though I don’t use it as much as I should.
My friends who constantly check in on baby C and me whether it’s through calls, emails, texts, twitter, instagram, it all means so much.
My husband who pulls me out of every bad mood and negative thought. He’s even learning how to make my breakfast sandwich on the weekends. For that, I’ll share my eggs.
Healthy pregnancy. Although I am more likely to be complaining about some type of ache or uncomfortableness at this moment, I’m super grateful to be healthy and moving…and feeling pretty good at 36+ weeks.
My sister for just getting me. And supporting me. And trying new things at Trader Joe’s just because it will make me happy.
I know I have been such a mush lately. I can’t help it. I’ll blame the hormones. I hope you take time to reflect on what you are grateful for today. If you’re so inclined, feel free to leave what you are grateful for in the comments. I’d love to read them.
