The session was about defining a goal, determining the emotional feeling of the goal, and then putting it into a measurable first step.
Even though this was the intent behind the session, she spoke a lot about gratitude and taking time to be gracious with yourself and the world. She challenged us to see our world in terms of what do we appreciate.
Today, I woke up with the intention of having gratitude but last night we ended up with an unexpected visitor who needed a place to stay for a night (or few) just as I was falling asleep so the morning came much much too early.
I have had a terrible menstrual cycle for the last week - think cup overflowth stuff.
Our basement contractor started today - only to discover the termite damage is some of the strangest he has seen and that it is entirely in unexpected places.
It is if I am almost being challenged to find gratitude in a day like today. But I will try:
Things for which I am grateful even though there were lots of things that went wrong
- I drove Hannabert to school this morning and we had time to stop for breakfast and chitchat
- I was able to use my TMobile hotspot to complete work after my regular internet when down
- The contractor and his team showed up to work on our basement!
- Despite the fact that I really didn't want to see more termite damage, I am glad the contractor found it because learning about it later when the side of the house collapsed would have been terrible.
- Our last minute guest brought an adorable puppy with her!
- #TheMinion behaved really well with the contractor's crew today
- Tomorrow is flag football day!
- I have chili defrosting on my counter for supper
- I get a day off tomorrow for a CLE day at a local law firm
- For the first time in over 6 months, I made time to go to my blog.
So a list of all the things that went right today feels a lot better than all the stuff that didn't.
PS - we are missing our #Headband dog. Keep her in your thoughts and say a prayer that she returns home to us safe and sound
PPS - Keep good thoughts coming our way that there are no other unexpected issues hiding in our basement
