Inspiration Thursdays: Some days…

Because Thursday’s child has far to go…

There are some days, in fact, some weeks where, little by little, life seems to get busier and busier. In fact, today is one of those days for me. Sleep seems to become a luxury during these times. It’s easy when you are tired to get a little overwhelmed, to not be able to see the brightness of life around you quite as easily. To feel significantly less than inspired. It’s on these days that I pour myself plenty of coffee (oh wonderful coffee!) and do my best to take each moment as it comes. I purposefully focus on “good” things. These are the days that focussing on the good things matters the very most. I look for the colors around me. Literally. I let myself be amazed by things that are so easily overlooked. At the end of these days, as I tuck my boys into bed, I spend a little extra time on our nightly ritual question: What was your favorite thing about this day that made you smile?

And if that doesn’t work, try a little relativism by considering what I often do: “Well, today didn’t kill me. Let’s try again tomorrow!”
