Good morning Sunshines!
It is before 7 on Sunday morning and I am wide awake. I've actually been awake for at least an hour now.
In all honesty I was not happy to be awake so early. I woke up because I couldn't breathe. I have asmthmatic bronchitis. Which has pretty much made me miserable for the past 2 weeks. So this morning when everyone in the house was asleep and I found myself awake, I found myself wishing I were back to sleep.
Now that I've been awake and alone with my thoughts I realize how truly blessed I am. I know that for me it can be easy to focus on the the negatives in life. I've been doing a lot of that lately. So today I've decided to make a conscious effort to be more positive. I'm going to try to find the silver lining to every dark cloud.
First silver lining:
I may be sick (dark cloud) but I'm well enough to be at home with my family. I'm not stuck in the hospital with IVs and oxygen masks and that horrible food!
Second silver lining:
This one really isn't even a silver lining, it's really a whole entire sunbeam! My family is healthy! My children, my husband, even my dog are all healthy!
Third silver lining:
It's Sunday! Which means that even though I'm up way too early (dark cloud) I don't have to go to work. I can stay home and rest.
I acknowledge that I have far more things to be happy about than I have listed here. I'm really thankful for all of you. I truly appreciate you reading my blog and being a part of my journey!
