Last Tuesday I was struggling a lot, so I had a hard time coming up with things I was grateful for. That’s sad because even on my roughest days, I have so much to be thankful for.
I met with my counselor yesterday (details will be in another post), and one of the things that she said will help me produce more dopamine is to constantly think about what I’m grateful for.
My amazing husband and amazing marriage. I am beyond blessed to have him in my life. He takes care of me, allows me what I need to take care of myself, supports me in anything that I need, loves the kids, is a spiritual leader. I could go on and on. He is everything I need in a husband.
All three of my kids made the A/B honor roll, and they are all 2 grades above on their reading levels (1st grader-3rd grade level, 2nd grader-4th grade level… and he came in at first grade level! And 5th grader-7/8 grade level).
I enjoyed a day with the kids this past Saturday. Lunch with Granny at Chili’s, Lego Batman movie, and groceries (which was pretty stressful, but over all the day was great!).
I’m excited about the summer activities that we will have. Reading logs, Summer Bridge Activity books, and labs from our curriculum that we were doing (they are very excited about that).
Karis and I are starting a study together, and the family started a devotional. It’s going well so far!
These are the books (plus Intuitive Eating that I already had) that I bought to read while working with the dietitian. I’m excited about them.
I love my time with my kids (most) every evening.
Today I felt the desire and energy to plan my day again. It’s been a while. I had such a bad week last week that it threw me for a loop.
I’m also grateful for:
- My amazing counselor! She has been a counselor for 30 years and definitely knows what she’s doing. She is fantastic.
- The little things in life… the birds singing, warm days, the sun rise over the hills
- Working with an amazing dietitian. I really think she’s going to help me change the way I look at food and my body! This will revolutionize my life!
- So much more!
What are you grateful for today?
