It's been another trying week for me...not sleeping well, still on crutches anytime I'm out of the house or navigating the stair IN the house, can't lift my grandson (boooo), can't drive myself anywhere, doctor's appointments, no real answers for why I'm having the knee issues that I am...it's trying and frustrating.
Having said all that I still have reasons to celebrate!
This week I'm especially grateful for my husband and the sacrifices he has made to make sure I have what I need and that I am safe. He's having to "drive Miss Daisy" wherever I need to go and he has done so without complaint. A girl can't get much luckier than that.
During my forced "down" time I'm focusing on being gentle with myself. I need to allow myself to grieve and heal emotionally from my father's all to recent death, I need to heal physically; and while I'm anxious to get my side hustle rocking and rolling...I'm taking it a day at a time. Some days I just can't pull a creative thought out of this head!
As part of my quest for healing, self love and improving my outlook on life, I'm reading:
"Imagine what our world would be like if everyone loved themselves so much that they weren't threatened by other people's opinions or skin colors or sexual preferences or talents or education or possessions or lack of possessions or religious beliefs or customs or their general tendency to just be whoever the hell they are. Imagine how different your reality would be (and the reality of everyone surrounding you) if you woke up every morning certain of your own lovability and your critically important role on this planet. And if you poo-pooed shame, guilt, self-doubt, and self-loathing and allowed yourself to be, do, and have everything your little heart desired.
THAT'S the kind of world I want to live in."
So as I'm allowing myself to heal, I'm focusing on being grateful for those that are taking care of, praying for and loving me through this season of my life. I'm allowing myself to take care of ME.
What are YOU celebrating this week? Tell me in the comments below! I'd love to celebrate with you!
