Taking a minute to pause and enjoy simplicity is so good for feeling more positive.
I had a compressed day at work yesterday, trying to do at least three things at once through most of the day, squeezing in home learning too. It was non-stop and I was feeling hassled and stressed.
After dinner, while the boys watched TV, I watered the garden and sat for half an hour on the patio in the sun.
Small boy had made a paper plate sunshine and it was drying on the table.
Between the blue sky, the veggies finally moving to production, the warm sun, the paper plate sun and a bit of peace; my mood lifted.
So rather than letting the work stress get to me, from here on in I’m going to go to my happy place and revel in some simple pleasures.
Well that’s the plan, don’t hold it against me when it doesn’t play out that way!
