Hubs and I went to a new trivia spot this week, where there hostess announced she had dubbed this week National Positivity Week. If ever there were a sign I need to get off my butt and get back here, that was it.
Hello from the beach!! The house is built, our furniture is in the same state and house, we’re finally settling in to some semblance of a routine, and I have no more excuses for not paying any attention to my creative endeavors.
The only thing I’ve crocheted has been chair socks to guard this floor I’m suddenly very protective over and the only thing I’ve painted has been something colorful for the mantle. Every time I stop to take time for myself, I can see a thousand things I still need to do to get our new life unpacked and organized. I’ve been so focused that I’ve started to feel guilty when I take time to enjoy myself.
It’s one thing to recognize and appreciate your blessings, it’s quite another to use them as an excuse to beat yourself up.
I’ve been allowing this anxiety over being worthy come between me and enjoying this life we’re beginning down here… kinda defeats the purpose don’t you think? That said, I’ve stumbled on my first positive affirmation!
I am worthy of my blessings and enjoyment is gratitude enough.
A bit lengthy, but both parts are equally as important I think. While I’m reminding myself that I deserve my happiness, I’ll be cultivating more by getting back into my blog routine, crocheting fun things, practicing yoga, riding my bike, cooking, painting… you get the idea.
Blessings to be grateful for:
- I can ride my bike to the market
- My dog has a fenced backyard
- Hubs is just downstairs when he goes to work
- We have amazing neighbors
- You’re still here even though I disappeared for a month!! (that’s a major blessing)
It’s good to be home, y’all.
