Gratitude Journal July

I would have posted this last week but our holiday and poor Wi-Fi got in the way! July was a month of ‘events’ and occurrences, rather than ‘normal’ life. The end of the school year, an art exhibition, my twin daughters’ birthday, going on holiday. All fun and exciting things, that I loved enjoying and…

Gratitude Journal June

Sometimes you have a month that is torn between such highs and low that it is difficult to know what to be grateful for. It can leave you with a funny feeling inside. My gratitude journal came about because I wasn’t great at being grateful. All too often I had a negative view of things….

Gratitude Journal: May

With May has come a certain realisation. In recent months I had been getting overwhelmed by the things that are important to me. But I *may* (fingers crossed) have found a way to get rid of this pit of the stomach feeling. Overwhelm The bottom line is that there is a lot of things going…

Making bedtime calmer with relaxation

Bedtime in any house with young children can be fraught with obstacles. Everybody is tired. It’s easy to lose patience. It’s easy for children to get wound up, hyperactive and bouncing off the walls. Even with the best will in the world, it can turn to Armageddon. Wouldn’t it be nice to find a way…

Gratitude Journal April

Despite the weather, April was much better than March. And what things in particular were responsible for this? Split between the children and my creative outputs, I have been finding joy in taking a step back and evaluating what really matters. I spent the first half of the month really enjoying the Easter break with…

The irony; this month feels like not a lot has gone right for me, and yet… I reached some of the goals that I set at the beginning of the year (without a time frame)! So where is the sense in that? I felt challenged this month. I had things that I felt anxious about,…

Gratitude Journal February

And what to be thankful for this month? First there is simply the days being noticeably longer and lighter, buds of new life that can be seen on trees and plants, in the garden and in the streets where I walk, more sunny days. All this I see as positive, I am grateful Spring is…

Gratitude Journal January

What a month. It has been a bit of a rollercoaster month, at times feeling incredibly stressful or just like I am floundering, and at others full of uplifting moments and with lots of inspiration for new challenges I am pursuing. I had some clear goals for my life going forwards, not just 2016 but…

What you give out, is reflected back to you

I am going rather hippy on you today, but I can promise you it’s not madness at all, and it’s rather amazing. As a *disclaimer*, I do believe that what happens is supposed to happen, but even if you are cynical about that I hope that you will still read on and find something interesting…

Cheesy gratitude biscuits

I thought that I wouldn’t be writing my gratitude journal every week, and last week I did do a little creative writing instead. But it appears that I can’t help myself from being a little bit grateful for the good things that have happened! It’s all about the fun activities I shared with my children…
