Feeling stuffy? Sometimes nothing needs to change but your attitude. This week I'm focusing on Practicing Gratitude and I have made up some iphone and computer wallpaper to remind me. I have Jodi from Practicing Simplicity to thank for it. My Australian Creatives Series has been a really great source of inspiration for me, it's amazing how lovely people are. To be truly grateful was the message that spoke to me the most from Jodi's interview so I chucked it on my computer desktop and focused on all the ways where I'm a freakin lucky duck.
So let me count the ways, my family is awesome, all of them. The ones that made me, the ones I made and the one that I will maybe someday marry into. We are so lucky. My children have 17 cousins, that can't be right, hold up, let me count. No it's 16 if you count in utero bubs. 16! That's like a full little army, that's two whole teams in most sports but more importantly it's a village. I also have a partner who is so focused and determined but knows how to have fun. Then there are my lovely friends, both real-world and bloggy, my folks - that are so far past supportive it's actually a joke. I have a lovely and productive hobby (blogging) that makes me truly happy and I live on one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen, ever.
Ok this sounds like some sort of crazy boast but that was not the point. When the grocery bill is outrageous, when you are doing long days with little kids, when your partner is working so hard that it is draining him physically and when you spend hours a day just trying to get a certain little person to PUT HER FREAKIN CLOTHES BACK ON it is important to just be grateful. And I did need to remind myself.
Anyway, just in case you wanted to have a little thanks-party, I made Computer Wallpaper, iPhone 4 Wallpaper and iPhone 5 wallpaper so just click the links to download them. I hope you have a great week.
