When we live in crisis, it’s easy to slip into some level of losing your enjoyment in life. This year, my husband and I made it a goal to focus on ourselves as parents. We’ve spent so much time doing therapy for Miss S and hoping for grand results only to end up with not much of a return on our investment.
For me, working on myself means I have to sometimes fight to find the good. It’s easy for me to get discouraged and forget about all the good in life. It’s a process to remind myself about things that I am excited about and that make me feel good about life! So today I’m sharing a few things I’m into right now and super excited about…in my monthly something good series.
Good things jar.
I’m really excited to start this for 2017. I had also shared the image above on facebook from Hip2Save and I absolutely loved this idea! Although, I’m hoping we stick with it until December 31, 2017 I highly doubt we will make it that long. I am hoping to fill our jar with great things over the next year.
Sometimes it’s the smallest things in life that bring me joy. I have a tendency to procrastinate buying everyday things that need to replaced, like towels. It’s really bad that my when my mother notices she usually does it for me. That’s how horrible looking my towels end up. Like with stains and rips and holes and I still use them. So this little towel in my kitchen now brings me so much joy. Mostly because it has polka-dots and it matches my kitchen. I know it’s weird. But, if this rings true for you too, BUY THE NEW TOWELS!!
The Fringe Hours.
I bought this book and the companion journal for myself for Christmas. Yes, I buy my own Christmas Presents. I am really enjoying reading an actual live book instead of from my kindle, like I normally do.
Having Sensory Dad home over break.
I don’t know if I would survive Christmas break if it wasn’t for Sensory Dad being home for 10 days with us. I’m so thankful that he’s here to help. We’ve got a ton of fun things planned, lets hope we survive!
Netflix has a new season of Rescue bots that lets me sleep in!! It’s been 6 years of sleep deprivation and we will take any extra amount of sleep possible!
