Last week my Friend Crystal, hi Crystal, shared this adorable post on 5 things that were bringing her joy right now. Y’all I LOVED her post. Love, love, LOVED it. I think it is so important to focus on the little things in life that put a smile on our faces. Sometimes pausing to reflect on those things can bring us out of the funk that can so quickly entangle us.
Today I wanted to copy her idea and share 5 things in life that are bringing me joy.
Surprise… or maybe not. If you know me well, you know that we spend most of our summer days at the pool. There are a few reasons for this.
*It keeps the kids busy, therefore tired, therefore they sleep better.
*It is too hot outside to do anything other than swim.
*Swimming is a life-skill, I’m just trying to help the kids out 😉 .
*We simply just love hanging out at the pool and will continue to do so every summer until the say “Mom, enough already.”
Over the past 6 weeks I have rediscovered my love for reading and have jumped from one book, to another, to another. I have no intentions of stopping, but I know the upcoming school year will seriously slow my roll 🙄 .
I have been TRYING to eat healthier lately and even though summer seems like the easy time to do that, it isn’t always that simple. Because let’s be honest, sometimes we just want to eat all of the ice cream. Recently I was able to try Arctic Zero, I was so excited to have a guilt free chance to indulge a bit. My favorite flavors were definitely the Brownie Blast and Peanut Butter Swirl. So when the girls want ice cream, I don’t have to feel left out and sad anymore. It’s pretty fantastic. And on those rare occasions when I want to eat all the ice cream… I can!
I have a love hate relationship with running, so I am not sure if I should actually list this one or not. However, I have ran over 13 miles in the past week so I am definitely making steps forward to those longer runs that I used to love… or is it hate. No matter which way this one actually falls I do love the way I feel when I push myself to be better. And running always does that for me.
At the moment I wrote this Marissa had sat up the sweetest surprise for her sister. I could never explain it in detail on the blog, but seeing the relationship those two have brings me more joy than headache. (Even though there are plenty of headaches 😆 .) I pray every single day that their relationship will continue to grow through the years and they will have a tight bond for the rest of their lives.
What is bringing you joy right now?
