My 2 Minute Grateful List

5 Flares Filament.io 5 Flares ×

I have been having a very rough month. I am super stressed from all of this soy allergy business, and I am feeling overwhelmed with what I can and cannot eat/use, plus V is having a rough start back to school (we are seriously considering homeschooling).

I have been really down, and I have been feeling sick and just not myself.

I found this post on Finding Joy … and I decided that a grateful list may be just what I needed. So I am setting a timer for two minutes, and I am writing down everything that I am grateful for.

Here goes ….

I am Grateful For:

family
kids
friends
my animals
my step dad is doing better
my supportive fiance
the soy free chocolate chip morsels I found
blog
coffee
ice cream (but I haven’t found a soy free version yet!)
spell check :)
memories of my dad
spring flowers
thunder/rain storms
the food that I can eat
my new couch coming Monday
the party on Saturday
fall

Well, there is my list. It did make me feel better to write it all out. It gives me a bit of peace to look at what is good and positive in my life.

This may be something that I have to do a bit more often….

Do you ever make a grateful list?

      Thanks Jodi. Things are getting a bit easier as my list of foods I can eat are slowing growing. It is just a big adjustment … and its a bit harder with the kids. I have been making two meals, which I don’t like to do, but they aren’t as happy to eat meals of mostly veggies yet!
