Monday. What can I say about Monday besides the fact that it is certainly not Mother’s Day! Laundry, dishes, and cooking were back in full effect and you know what? I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I’m still so thankful for my day off yesterday, but I’m looking at today through a new lense. Laundry means we have clothes to wear, Dishes and cooking means we have food to eat. There are so many things that we can complain about these days(like the goto meeting I couldn’t pull up on any device in my house as I muttered some words under my breath), but there are so many blessings as well. The thing is, it is easy to complain, I believe it’s a choice, but it’s also the easy choice. It’s harder to peel away the layers and look for the blessings, but it is so much more worth it. I am mostly a pessimist for myself. For everyone else, I am the cheerleader, the encourager, the optimist. That’s just the way I am, but since becoming aware of it, I’m working on changing it. I’m working on not letting things not get under my skin so easily, working on being more flexible, working on being more intentional, working on not being so hard on myself. It’s hard work, but it’s worth it.  So this Monday…

Count your blessings

and

Be well.
