Today, I am thankful for those moments that can open your eyes or just change your whole world...
Life has been wonky to say the least but I was sitting down to do this entry and all I could think about was how proud my daughter was of herself... she was all smiles because she got through a 2nd day of school and that she's adjusting to all the changes so well.. She even talked about it in our bedtime ritual of "favorite parts of the day"... something we have done since she was very little..
It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are good things happening in life and also to hear about everyone's day and/or to see their point of view on how things occurred for them.. great way to check in.. we also have a gratitude jar...
Anyways, so not to get off track.. it was in this moment my eyes opened to a different way of seeing things.. I have been so worried that these wonky times are having a negative effect on our daughter and even our selves but even if there are negative effects they are not showing today..
I was reminded today that may be it's not as bad or as negative as I think and/or may be I should stop worrying until it becomes something to worry about... Don't get me wrong I may still worry about us adjusting to what will come... because I know there could be issues later or even tomorrow but I need to focus on that she's okay and so are we today...
From this conversation I realized our daughter is just as talkative with us if not more so... and in her point of view she's rocking these changes and is okay with experiencing them even through at the same time it's sad too... she knows that one day she will be back in school like before and that the world as she knew it will re-open up but until then she is just making it work... being flexible and going with the flow..a great reminder for me to do the same...
So today I am thankful for this life experience and reminder that my daughter is okay and so are we... that we can't control tomorrow but we can live in the present and enjoy these moments as the come along with growing through them...
