Positive Daily Three – Zippity Doo Da

It wasn’t an entirely wonderful day, but I think there were more good moments today than there were bad.  The gap may be small, but still, it was a decent day.

I made it to the park to do my workout with the mom I met there.  My youngest got out and ran around for a bit.  It was a beautiful day with a gentle breeze that kept everything cool.

I didn’t sleep well last night, so I was pretty beat when my daughter went down for her nap.  I grabbed a chair and read my book outside in the fresh air.  I haven’t made time to do that in years.  It felt great.  Of course, now I wish I had spent the time cleaning the house, but it was great to get a little relaxation in anyway.

Today, the kids were all in fairly decent moods.  There was not a lot of negativity, which helped me tremendously.  My patience and frustration build quickly when I don’t sleep well, so the fact that they were all in pretty good moods made it easier for me to get through the day trying to stay focused on positive things.
