I feel as though these past few weeks have been all-encompassing. They have been the kind of days where I look around at the end of it and wonder what I have accomplished. Most days it's not even a clean house. But that's partly because the last thing I want to do in my child-free time is clean the house. And the house doesn't get clean if the kids are up and about.
Is your house that way too? I hope mine isn't the only one.
Anyway, I know that everyone struggles with something (or multiple somethings) in their life. Life itself contains highs and lows and lately, I'm feeling awfully low.
Then I had an idea. A lightbulb. A hopefully glorious (but simple -- I don't need any more complexity!) lightbulb that will help me think "lemonade" when I'm facing screaming, crying "lemons".
When I was in college, I kept a beautiful notebook full of quotes that I loved. I still have it. And I love the idea of writing down those things that inspire and uplift me so that I can go back to them. Problem is, I don't go back and read them all. That beautiful book is collecting dust as we speak.
But what if I merged that idea with the calendar/quote a day idea? What if I got a jar and wrote down those quotes and put them in the jar so that when I need them, there they are?
I think I'll try that.
Not original or brilliant but, hello, why haven't I done this before?
And if it's ok with you, I might just share them here too. Because sometimes it helps to share.
