Tuesday: I love my local friends. I will probably say that a lot in this series but friends are so important.
Wednesday: I was pleased to receive a phone call to say that my kids had won a school holiday colouring contest through the local library. They were stoked with their prizes. Thank you so much to the staff at the library!
I love our library for so many reasons. It was a lifesaver when the kids were little; a place to visit on a rainy day, baby rhyme and song sessions and a super duper toy library (free!) that we still use regularly, plus a yummy hot chocolate on occasion. These days I love it mostly because of the OneCard system...I order my books online and I receive a text to say when they are available to collect, too easy.
Thursday: An emotional day for me, teary and a bit all over the shop; feeling extra sensitive. It was interesting to notice. Weather wise, it was warm and super windy which made me feel a little flustered at times. I bought myself some flowers, just a little reminder to myself that I am lovely and that I can nurture myself, as well as be nurtured by others, when I need it or when I feel like I am beginning to feel depleted. I had a nap and an early night! I look forward to my lillies opening up :-)
Today was a lot better but I was still feeling tired, I ended up having another nap after volunteering at school and doing errands. I will tuck myself into bed very soon.
Perhaps because yesterday was a little rough, I have felt a lot more appreciation in general.
I am so grateful for the awesome people in my life.
I am grateful for week long monopoly games, we leave the game set up to return to when we have the time or inclination :-)
I am grateful that my contract for 2 days work providing Reiki in community health has been renewed until the end of the term, yay! It's not for everyone and that's okay but it feels so good to receive so much positive feedback and to know that the people who benefit from complimentary health therapies, in addition to mainstream medicine and psychology, really benefit.
