I’ve seen posts like this floating around the blog world and I thought I’d give it a shot myself. I love getting back to my blog roots– and writing just to write. Writing whatever comes to mind as I type away on this mostly blank screen before me. It feels so good and almost therapeutic to just “speak” on a more candid level with all of you reading.
From Where I Stand… I see non-painted toenails and imperfections. But that’s okay. More often than not, we’re the only ones who fixate on our own imperfections because everyone else is too fixated on their own.
From Where I Stand… I see a little girl in fairy wings and Ninja Turtle pajamas. She played with her Ninja Turtle toys all Saturday morning, then she shot a gun with her daddy for the first time and came home and played dress-up with her Snow White dress, tiara and heels. I’ve got one well-rounded little girl!
From Where I Stand… The windows are open and the air is starting to gain a faint fall crispness. All I can think about as of late are apples, pumpkins and orange leaves. Time to put a little cinnamon in the diffuser and deeply inhale and exhale! This time of year is perfection!
From Where I Stand… My house is looking the cleanest it’s ever been in a long, long time. I was trying to figure out why I haven’t really given this place a good, deep cleaning and then I realized we haven’t had guests in a while. (Insert laugh-cry emoji here!) I can’t be the only one that cleans ferociously at no other time than that, right?
From Where I Stand… I should be counting my blessings instead of our shortcomings. Sometimes I’m a little too hard on Cory. I get cranky with him and tell him he’s not doing enough. But really? He rocked it this weekend. I haven’t cooked, he’s done it all for me. He even went above and beyond and shampooed the stairs, vacuumed out my car and shampooed my car seats! *Lucky lady* right here!
Form Where I Stand… I hope there’s a pot of gold waiting for me at the end of this week. I’m trying not to wish away the days. I’m trying to put all of my positive energy and all of the positive vibes I can out into the universe. Praying, hoping, and wishing to receive some really good news soon.
But if not? I’ll just keep counting those blessings, cleaning my house, writing for me, hugging my sweet little girl and loving on my man. We’re pretty dang lucky. Luckier than we even know.
What does the week look like from where you stand?
