Thankful Thursday Week 32/52

Hey friends! It’s been a pretty quiet week around here. It’s sometimes weird to think it’s been 5 months of this pandemic. 5 months of restrictions, sanitizing, and wondering what’s next!

I can’t help but be thankful on a daily basis that I’m blessed enough to be at home through all this. I don’t know how I’d be handling it all if I was on the front lines nursing patients through this. Actually I do know! I’d get up every day and do my job and be and tightly wound ball of stress.

It’s so easy to get tangled up in feeling blah with the whole situation but I’m making a strategic effort to see the good in all this!! My family is at home, safe, comfortable, healthy, together! Sure everyday life isn’t as simple as it used to be but it sure could be worse!! And I’m truly thankful it’s not worse!

Thankful Thursday Week 24/52

It’s been a week friends! We’re busy with the renovation but still found time to go to Campbell valley park this week and get out for some walks! I’m not going to lie I haven’t been doing much exercising lately (and it shows) and I feel blah most days I terms of fitness but getting out for walks these week has been helpful. I’m thankful for my lil walking buddies and the beauty of the forests near us!

Thankful Thursday Week 23/52

How is it already June?!?

This year has been crazy and somedays it’s hard to find positivity and gratitude given all that’s going on around us. But if I’ve learned anything from this it’s that your gratitude doesn’t have to be a big thing or something easy to explain. Just taking a few minutes to think about what I’m thankful for can often reset my negative energy!

So today I’m thankful we finally booked out kitchen counter install date! Our renovation has been on hold due to covid but it’s looking like we are able to move forward!

Thankful Thursday Week 20/52

I’m going to tell you the truth! I’m cranky! I’m really tired of this covid situation. I’m trying to stay positive but the whole woah is me, prisoner in my own home feeling is intense lately!

I tell myself it’s ok to visit cranky town and self pity palace but it’s not ok to live there!

So let’s talk about what I’m thankful for!

I went out this week for the first time in over two months! Like into a store! Near other people!! I’m thankful no one coughed on me! I’m thankful my anxiety didn’t reduce me to tears! It was a weird experience! The direction lines on the floors and stand here dots! The uneasy feeling when anyone gets within 10 feet of me!!! This whole situation is wild! Honestly I’m not a fan! I’m thankful I went out but was thankful to return home to my own bubble!

I’m also incredibly thankful my Erin Condren life planner arrived in record time!

Thankful Thursday Week 17/52

Happy Thursday everyone!!! Another week almost in the books. It’s been pretty mellow around our house. Not a lot of productivity going on! I guess that’s ok though. This whole situation has forced many people to slowdown and take a break. Something many of us longed for!

For today’s Thankful Thursday I’m thankful my little family is staying healthy and weathering this storm so far. 

Thankful Thursday Week 16/52

Hey friends! I’m not going to lie to any of you…. I’ve been cranky!! Not just a little off full on cranky!! I’m frustrated by having to put my renovations on hold and by being unable to move forward. I know it’s Thursday and my goal is to post what I’m thankful for but I’m also real. This whole thing is hard!

So today I’m Thankful for being able to be honest and tell you all that I’m struggling. I’m longing for normalcy of the day to day life we lost so abruptly! I do however remind myself daily how lucky I am that my family is safe and healthy and how much worse things could be! So I’m thankful I can be real and honest and still admit this is all very hard!

Thankful Thursday Week 14/52

Happy Thursday friends! We are in our fourth week of self isolation over here! The new life “normal” is a lot to take in! Definitely a whole host of emotions daily! I’m thankful my little family is holding up well and healthy so far. I’m thankful for all the folks doing their best to follow the rules and care for each other!

Lets remember there is no one size fits all for handling this current pandemic situation! Some people will thrive through this and others will fall, hurt, or even take their own lives. If you want to work out at home, awesome! If you want to sit on the couch and binge watch Netflix, fantastic! Do whatever feels right with your time at home. Don’t worry about what other people are doing! Resist the urge to compare yourself to others! Resist the urge to judge how others are reacting/function/coping or not! We’re all in this together but we are all allowed to work through it how we need to! Stay home and do you ❤️

PS I’m really thankful for iced coffee! ☕️☕️

Thankful Thursday Week 13/52

It’s been a long week for all of us! I don’t have much to say today but I will share one of the things im thankful for today. I’m thankful for all the logistics staff, farmers, truck drivers, grocery store staff etc working through this terrifying time to maintain our food supply.

Without these integral workers things would be much harder than they already are! So thank you to you and everyone on the front lines. ❤️
