The rough with the smooth

img_9040As I lay in bed this morning reading Michelle’s letter in my inbox {which is such a delight}, it really struck a chord with me. The feeling of overwhelm that sometimes washes over us, not just the seemingly endless to-dos, but emotional overwhelm too, can be really hard to deal with…

Wind back to yesterday and I was in the middle of an emotional overwhelm meltdown. I am not sure where it came from, but it did. It was not a good day. There was shouting. There were things said. There were tears. There was silence…

Yesterday was the rough. But, with the rough comes the smooth. With the shouting comes the forgiveness and for this I am grateful. I am grateful that we don’t hold grudges. That we say sorry. That we still love through it all.

I have closed my eyes, I have opened them and I am beginning again…thank you Michelle for this timely reminder x

Gratitude Week 2016

 

Gratidute Week 2016 {Wednesday}

img_9065I had an early meeting for my volunteer role this morning and I knew as I came out of the meeting that a bus was due. It would have been so easy just to sit at the stop and wait, but instead I decided to walk and am I so glad I did.  As I made my way through the park to work under a clear blue sky and a carpet of  golden leaves beneath my feet I inhaled deeply the crisp November air and felt grateful to witness such beauty.

How beautiful the leaves grow old. How full of light and colour are their last days. ~ John Burrows

{yes, Mr. Burrows, YES}

I have love receiving Michelle’s notes in my inbox every day, they are so and beautiful and full of thought. Thank you. Gratitude Week 2016
