I’ve had a week of quiet contemplation, one way or another.
Firstly, I had to really get a grip on myself earlier in the week because I was spazzing a bit about the Kidspot Top 50 Bloggers comp. Seriously, how many shades of sad and needy can I turn? Don’t worry, I slapped myself around the face and I woke up to myself and I wrote this post and I feel much better about the whole darn thing.
Thirdly, a few work things have been shaken up a bit and… I’m shaken up a bit. Rolled, but not rattled, so to speak. All is well, but I’m having to find my feet AGAIN and it’s getting harder and harder to roll with the punches, to be honest.
And just today, a blogger that I love included me in her post in a way that I am very comfortable with, but… it’s made me think once again about the heavy power of words.
So, this week I’m grateful for…
127. Reflection – taking the time to stop for a minute and think about the way things are.
128. Expression – I am so glad that I seem to be able to express my true meaning and have others understand what I am trying to say (for the most part, god knows there are some doozy exceptions!) Many people struggle with this so much so it’s an ability that I am very grateful for indeed.
129. Remembering – where we’ve come from, what plans we had, the map we followed and how far along the road we are. My sister has a linky on Saturdays that perfectly reminds us to do this with our blogs. Come join in!
So, what’s making you smile today? Add your I’m Grateful For post to the list below (and please, we love you, but it really does matter that your post is a Grateful one and not just a random), add the button (grab the code from my sidebar and paste it into your post) andpretty-please add a link back to me. Then pop over to visit other bloggers who are spreading a little sunshine.
