This morning as I was walking to work I was reflecting. I have been losing my patience and been rude to Lucas recently. I have also been using my phone more and more in front of the children. So I tell myself not to do that.
Also my friend, Cindy, has taken up the Gratitude Challenge. The first time I saw it I thought it was cheesy and dismissed it. Then recently I read her posts and I find that I quite like reading them. So this time I did not dismiss it, I gave it some thought. There is no harm in trying it out. At worst you write crap for 21 days. At best you learn to appreciate what you have in life and become happier. I acknowledge, I'm not always a joy to be around. I am strict with myself and others around me, have high double standards, that it's no fun to be with me.
So I shall try the Gratitude Challenge too. I will not write it on Facebook, I don't need everyone to know what I am grateful for. I shall write it in my yellow notebook, which is more accessible anywhere. And truly, I don't want to spend so much time on my phone.
