Last year, I wrote a private blog post after watching a video that heightened my sense of gratitude. Despite having a challenging week, my sense of gratitude remains intact tonight. I am very thankful for the gift of life.
Life feels less overwhelming when we think positively about the things we do. Let’s say ‘I get to’ instead of ‘I have to’ when talking and thinking about the things we need to do (our duties as wives, mothers, parents, etc.).
I get to clean my house.
I get to do laundry.
I get to cook for my family everyday.
I get to mother a toddler who keeps the house disorganized.
I get to read tons of articles on infant and early childhood mental health.
I get to attend classes after a long day.
I get to work and pickup my child from daycare after work.
I get to do all these things because I am alive and well. That’s something to be thankful for.
Have a great weekend, my friends! ♥️
