Focus On the Positive

There are days, that sometimes stretch into weeks when it seems like there are too many negatives floating around and not enough positives.  

Too many headaches and tears, not enough laughter and smiles.  Social media is rampant with oversharing and negative rants about things that perhaps should be kept private but who is to say.. 

Today I choose to seek out the positive, the smiles, the laughter and the feel good bits of kindness that I know are out there.  

Today, I begin a new personal project of identifying at least 3 good things that happen every day and writing them down so they cannot be forgotten.  

I remember stopping the kids in mid marathon complaining session and saying "Pop Quiz - tell me one good thing that happened today"  Sometimes the answers came quickly and other times they required a little more thought..  but always the mood was brightened and our day would continue.  

Sometimes we all need that.  Don't be afraid to take what you need.  Those that truly care about you will understand.  Do the rest really matter?  

Today, I take a page from the notebook of a new stepmom with 3 crazy kids of so very long ago..  and smile.  <3

Adventuring down the road ahead..

I woke up a few mornings ago in the middle of the night and my mind starting whirring away.
