31 Days of Gratitude: Day 23


🌼I am doing a life coaching course through Udemy that I am thoroughly enjoying. The instructor is very authentic and down to earth and very easy to relate to. This evening I listened to the lesson on identity and did some reflecting. It is so scary how we take on identities based on our interpretation of things that have happened over the years. Today I am grateful for the opportunity to become aware of how I have held myself back over the years. Still lots to work through but it’s a start. 🙏🌼

31 Days of Gratitude: Day 22


🌼Sometimes, when I least expect it, I get these little reminders that my son is growing up. They jar my brain a bit. They other day his phone went to voicemail. He had set up his mailbox before his voice broke. I wasn’t expecting to hear his little boy voice and I almost burst into tears.

This evening I walked past the table and saw his wallet next to my car keys and my first thought was: “what man is in the house” and then I realised what I was looking at.

My baby is growing up. I don’t know if I will ever be ready for each milestone. I am however grateful that I do get to witness each one and help him through them too. 🌼

31 days of Gratitude: Day 20


🌼Today I am grateful for the journey that I am on. It’s so weird and wonderful to be aware of God /the Universe/Spirit (take your pick) working their magic through you and the people around you. All we have to do is decide what it is we want, get out of the way by surrendering to what is, and then watch the magic unfold before our very eyes. I can’t remember the exact event that set me on this path but I am so grateful that it happened and led to the journey that I am on. Today I am grateful for my journey🙏🌼

31 Days of Gratitude: Day 19


🌼Today I am grateful for the time and space to relax. I was so exhausted. Alex and I went to watch Spider-Man. I think Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is the best one yet. What do you think? I had my hair done yesterday and today I did some cleaning and then gave up half way and booked for someone to come in on Tuesday and finish it off. 🙈 I am so grateful that I can actually just book someone to help. Today I am grateful for the time and space to relax. 🌼

31 Days of Gratitude: Day 17


🌼Today I am grateful for surprises. This is the 4th year that I am doing this gratitude month challenge and every year, between the 10th and 20th Dec I get something for free. This year I had ordered a skirt and top online and it arrived yesterday. To my surprise, there was a free top and a scrunchy for my hair. I also popped into the Lego store to buy a piece that we had lost and the guy gave it to me for free. It was really sweet of him. It blows my mind how this has happened for 4 years in a row. Thank you God for my blessings, be they great or small. 🌼

31 days of Gratitude: Day 16


🌼Today I am grateful for the Christmas’s I got to spend with my mum. This evening Alex and I put up the Christmas tree while listening to some Christmas carols. I found myself in tears as the carols took me back to 40+ years of midnight masses with our family. My mum loved those services and especially the Christmas carols. So today I am grateful for all the Christmas’s that I was blessed to spend with her and our family. 🌼

Our attempt at Christmas decorations ☺️
