I miss my kids

My kids are spending time with their dad for 6 weeks and I really miss them.

When I have them all the time, I wish I could have a break.

I want them with me.
And I want a break.

And the grass… always seems greener on the other side of the fence.

Can you relate?

What is this phenomenon we experience of always thinking things will be better if they are different than they are now?

Even though I feel it sometimes, I know it’s not really true.

What if today you can enjoy exactly what’s in front of you for what it is?

What if feeling better or happier or more successful isn’t out there?

What if it’s inside of you? What if it’s available in this very moment?

Hug your kids if they are with you.

Enjoy the silence if they aren’t.
Enjoy your independence.

Laugh about that not-so-great date.

Wherever you are – breathe it in, rather than wish it away.

Sending you love and wishes for a beautiful weekend- you deserve it!

Gifts

I love gifts.

And it’s my birthday this week too.

I love to give people gifts.  I love to gift myself.

Gifts are fun and thoughtful.  Gifts are a treat.

I didn’t used to gift myself at all.  I always went without.  I didn’t think having things I liked was a big deal to be honest.   I didn’t think my desires in life mattered much.

And one day, I started to realize- they did.  I started paying attention to what I liked and what I wanted.  I decided that I was worth paying a little attention to and that it was okay for me to do that.

The more I noticed what was important to me and what I liked… the more I found myself.  I started to have so many ideas for what I wanted in my future.  I started to come back to life after feeling a whole lot of nothing inside for a long time.

Will you give yourself the gift of paying attention to what matters to you?  I hope you will.
