Every Saturday, join me as I CELEBRATE This Week
with Ruth Ayres from Discover. Play. Build.
Gosh I love this weekly celebration post. It's freeing to sit down at my computer and think I can write about whatever I want to write about. I always end up reflecting upon my week and thinking about the ups and down. Life ebbs and flows for me. I've posted before about how I would love to have a daily routine but it doesn't seem to work right now. We have lots of routines but not a consistent daily routine. But that's okay. I think for me, having the change and moving from one thing to the next helps me have balance. Whether I like it or not, I jump to different projects depending on what seems to fit my mood.
But this weekly check in, a time to pause and appreciate the flow, helps me recognize the movement - whether I'm focusing on my blog or my novel or a presentation - I'm making progress in some way. And that feels great. It helps that the house is quiet and the puppy is sleeping!
At work, I have a jar of little pieces of paper in it with some notes on them. I started this after reading Flow magazine. It came with little tear out cards so I could write down "Beautiful Moments" from my day. I found them at work and was reading them the other day...and as I sat here thinking about what to write, I remembered I have a little container of them here too!
So here it is!
Here's a Beautiful Moment from the fall: Little Bean and I colored his turkey to look like Darth Vader. He said he loved it and said I'm the best!
And another: Watching Peanut do math homework, trying hard, showing what he knows. He's so big!
I remember those moments but it helped to see the words written down to take me back to those moments. Maybe you'll start a jar of Beautiful Moments. It's a nice way to pause during the day and appreciate a Beautiful Moment and then great to be able to go back and cherish.
Today I'm celebrating the power of reflection, how I love to stop and pause, how appreciating Beautiful Moments now and later is a wonderful thing.
What are some beautiful moments you might celebrate this week?
I've got (virtual) confetti at the ready.
Thanks for stopping in to explore with me!
