Many times, I have described my current state as such, “feeling like I have been run over by a truck, got back up, to get run over again.” Don’t get me wrong, I really am a happy person! Really! However, there are days, moments, hours…where this Motherhood thing really wears me out! On these days…I encourage you to find ONE THING to feel good about, to celebrate! When we allow ourselves to pat ourselves on the back, we lighten up a bit. Today is a great day to lighten up…so why not celebrate something?
This morning I woke up earlier than usual so I could get into the office and get something crossed off my ‘to do’ list, before the kids woke up. One of those things was to figure out how I can renew my driver’s license without having to take a 2yr and 4 yr old to the driver’s facility. As I was looking up the hours online, I had one eye on a heaping amount of paperwork on my desk, and then thought about the project that lies ahead of me this morning…I am just not on top of it as I should be! Feeling the stress at 6:45am, I thought, “Uh oh, is this how my entire day is going to go? Full of stress?”
Then I saw it… and it turned my day around. I have been designated an Illinois Safe Driver! I have not had any accidents in 4 years!
Why would this turn my day around, you may ask? …because I am determined to find SOMETHING to celebrate today and even the Secretary of State’s office was congratulating me, so why not?
What could you celebrate today?
Got to work on time? CONGRATS! Showered this morning? Woo hoo! Did not send your kid to school with a low grade fever? You go girl!
Find ONE THING to celebrate today. And celebrate all day long!
