Together we are going to rock this year. I feel like I am laying a foundation for many positive things to come. Positivity doesn’t always come easy for me so I am trying my darndest to make it a part of every day. Yes, I talk to myself, I write things down, I make myself all sorts of notes.
I am also trying very hard to practice gratitude. I am grateful for the beautiful day you provided us with yesterday and a chance to take my son to a new park with super fun slides. I am grateful that even though you got my blood pumping and gave me near hysterics as I watched my son fall while climbing (as I frantically tried to get to him in time but couldn’t) that he was not injured.
I am grateful that while driving home I was paying attention and was able to maneuver my vehicle out of the way and avoid becoming part of the three car pile up that happened in front of me. I am thankful none of the people that were part of the accident were injured. They all hopped quickly out of their vehicles while I sat in mine trying to stop shaking so I could get out and make sure they were okay. The man I talked to was positive. “I am okay,” he said, (in all honesty he looked better than I felt he was even smiling.) “It was about time for a new car anyway.” His was the car in the middle. Watching that man was inspiring to me. I wish we could all take things in stride like he seemed to. I am very grateful for the experience of having met him for the brief time I did.
And while I didn’t accomplish every tiny little thing I wanted to yesterday, I made progress and that is all I really want. Progress every day no matter how small or large, just a few steps forward.
Peace and Blessings,
