It’s easy for me to become overwhelmed when something isnt going the “right” way – which basically just means it isn’t going how I expected it to. I can quickly become tied up in the negatives in my life. Last year, while talking with a friend that was going through some struggles, I told her that she needed to focus on “one good thing every day”. It’s like someone else was speaking, as I don’t even know where that advice came from, but it stuck with me. When things start to take a turn for the worse, I remember those words and find something to bring me back up. (Hence the tagline and name for this blog!)
Lately, I have been finding myself needing to focus on one good thing each day more than I’d like to. Sure, I could write a post about how E and aren’t getting along lately (I mean really, how hard is it to get along with a 4 year old? Turns out it can be difficult), or why we’ve decided to not put our house on the market, or really shitty things that my friends are going through right now, but instead I’ve decided to focus on all of the good in my life.
The people I have met so far through blogging are awesome, and very encouraging.
My pup Charlie cuddled with me all night, didn’t leave my side.
Hubby has the day off tomorrow and we are spending Easter Sunday with family.
The sun is shining today!
I got the biggest smile from A this morning when I went to get her up.
Along with these, I’ve decided to hop on the 101 in 1001 train. If you haven’t heard of this, it’s a challenge to do 101 new things in 1001 days. I love this idea because it will push me to do things that I’ve always wanted to do, help others in the process, and help myself become a better person. I also discovered that the end date is after my 35th birthday. (35, really?!) Check out my list here – and let me know if you have one too!
So, what is the good in your day today?
