Make Lemonade


Blogger fail. I was supposed to post about Christmas in July today, but my pictures are not edited. Instead of doing that last night, I basked in my own self pity. It was a rough day. I had trouble at the dentist. My eye was in A TON of pain from something wrong with my contact. I was completely exhausted. Pretty much I could find anything to complain about.

I think I need to make some lemonade. While I haven't been a Debbie Downer on the blog too much, this year has been harder than others. Don't get me wrong, I am beyond blessed, but there have been several thing this year that have tried to steal my smile and positivity.

Now this is not a woe is me post where I tell you about said crappy life events and struggles. It's more about how I need to suck it up. I can think of people with way worse hands dealt to them. Not saying that my struggles aren't struggles. Not saying that my hardships are lesser. Just saying that some days we need to view our lives through a different lens.

Today I'm choosing to view certain things through a different lens. I'm going to make lemonade. And I'll probably add some vodka. Since I'm not pregnant. Sorry for teasing y'all yesterday :)

So that being said, here is a list of positive things in my life that make my heart flutter:

  • My husband
  • My babies, Maggie and Moose
  • My family
  • My friends that are there for me when I need them
  • Running
  • Teaching group exercise
  • Snuggles on the couch
  • Weekends with nothing to do {Like this coming weekend!}
  • Having a job that pays the bills and allows us to do things that we want to do!
  • Traveling
  • A good glass of wine
  • Watermelon
  • Justin's Maple Almond Butter
  • New running tops
  • Sitting outside on a sunny summer day
  • Working out when I don't want to and how amazing I feel afterwards
  • Read a good book

So that's just a few of the many wonderful things that make me happy.

You know what else you can make with lemons? Lemoncello. Maybe I'll make some lemoncello instead. :)




What are the little things in life that make you happy?


Until next time...
With love and God bless,
