This moment....in my home.
This moment....I am grateful.
This post has got me thinking.....thinking how grateful I am, with what I've got. Thank you Claire. Thought provoking words.
I love my home, it's cosy...(not upstairs at the moment, that's just messy until our bedrooms finished, but I'll just gloss over that!), its homely. When friends visit they say how relaxed they feel, how comfortable they feel.
It's brought and paid for, we've worked hard over many years to pay off our mortgage, gone without, made sacrifices. And I'm so glad we did, we would have lost our home. I didn't know my life would change.
I reached a crucial point in my life a few years ago, I had two choices. I could either feel sorry for myself, ask why me, and risk getting sucked in to a downward spiral. Or I could just 'get on with life' think positively. Just take things one day at a time. Be grateful for what I have.
I chose the latter. Not because I'm better than anyone else but simply because it seemed the easier option, the simpler one. Why waste your energy on negativity? Thinking why Me, why Us? Any energy I do have might as well be put to good use, don't you think?
So this moment I'm grateful, for my lovely colourful home. That I can go into my daughters' rooms and sit on their beds, and know how lucky I am to have them. I can go into our bedroom and look at my newly painted happy wardrobes, I will be soon be sleeping in vintage heaven! Stand in front of my lovely little cupboard and grin like a Cheshire Cat! (Thank you all for your great response!)
I am Oh So grateful, for my colourful vintage sheets and wallpapers, (I'm really enjoying chopping them up to make more wallpaper packs!...coming soon!)
Yes, this moment. It's a good one.
Hope your moments are good too! And if they aren't too good at the moment, I really hope you'll find some strength within you, to find a more positive place too be.
