It's Monday once again, my friends. And as always that means it's time to reflect on the things that made us happy over the past week. And of course now is also the perfect time to set the tone for a great week to come!
If you missed my take on LML, you can find it here. If you missed the explanation of LML Monday, you can catch up here.
I have to admit that this past week was kind of rough. I wasn't really feeling well most of the time (having a lot of issues with pain and headaches.) I wasn't able to do a lot of the things that I had wanted to do. My typically awesome kids were having a hard time remembering how well behaved they usually are.
These are the times when it's easy to wallow. When it's easy to say that there's "nothing good" going on right now. And these are the times when I believe that it's most important to look deep inside and find something to be happy about. Something about life to appreciate.
Even when the pain is bad, or the kids are being monsters, or nothing seems to be going right, there are still little moments to cherish. Being able to have a family dinner together. Watching the kids use their amazing imaginations and invent incredibly creative games. Telling knock-knock jokes that don't make any sense, and laughing hysterically about them anyway. Being surrounded by the people you love, and being happy for each day that you get to spend with them.
I suppose that when it comes right down to it, this is what the LML theory is all about.
Ok. I shared mine - now it's your turn! Please feel free to leave me a comment and share some of your recent LML moments. Focus on the happy thoughts, and let's all have a great week!
