7 for seven

Leave a comment

7forseven_key-and-arrowLet’s face it // Mondays stink. Or at least we typically expect them to stink. That is why, every Monday, I post seven positives from the previous seven days of the week as a reminder of what I have so that the week starts out on an upswing. There is much truth in the belief that happy people attract good things, so it is important to start the week out right. Sometimes it’s the more grand, but other times, it’s the simple things.

My slow Internet in this small town truly hates WordPress, but I need my 7 for seven badly tonight, so I’m fighting the loading-wait-time-battle with a few short paragraphs. I’ve spent the better part of the last couple weeks packing boxes, imagining better classroom management for these nearly all-boy classes (I’ll spare you my nightmare stories – trust me, this dynamic is layered, tricky, and frustrating – only burdened more by the vitriol they are hearing/repeating on Fox News and from our very own president’s mouth – sigh – deep breath).

Nevertheless, I have good things in my life, and it’s enough that I can see the light at the end of this tunnel. I’ve got the love of my life by my side, with a fun new business, and a new home on the horizon. I can’t wait for Friday, but I can totally wait for Friday… the boxes!! Eek. I never realize just how much I can do without until I begin to pack.

And I appreciate what I do have. For example, my family came to visit for Easter weekend, and my ambitious mother planned a brunch with extended family in between all the furniture painting and updates getting ready for their permanent move to the greater Austin, TX area after my dad retires soon. As always, it was a nice break to see them and spend time with the people who I love.

I’ll be back next week with a regular 7 for seven (fingers crossed) with my new Internet!!!! Yep, I often say, it’s often the small things…

I hope to inspire you to reflect on all you have to be grateful & that your week brings you even more positivity + balance + bliss!  Feel free to share your seven with me as well / or even just a couple!

Have a wonderful week!
