I don't think I'll be alone when I say that with all the happenings going on in the world at the moment, it's hard not to feel scared and uncertain about our lives and the future. I've been feeling the anxiety creep in, the constant knot in my stomach and questioning where to go or what to do. But I know worry cannot solve anything.. I refuse to live like this and taint our memories with fear so I am trying my hardest to be mindful of the situation but not let it take over.
I'm trying to stay relaxed and positive and I'm trying to remind myself that a few toys left on the floor or glitter all over the girls clothes is nothing to be annoyed or grumpy about.. it's something to be happy about. I am grateful they are here, they are mine and they are happy. I'm trying my best to show my girls that childhood should (and will be) full of love and fun.
I wanted to do this happy list and it feels like the right time.. not only for me to remember what I'm grateful for but it may help lift your spirits too if you're reading this.
