Oddly enough, this week’s entry for The #gladitude project comes at the end of a rather nice week.
Aggravating, at times.
Stressful, at others.
But, no cosmic misalignment of Saturn’s fourth outer ring with the third moon of Jupiter, kind of snafu’s.
Shit, I didn’t even have a “Tuesday*.” \m/
(*for those not in the know…I do not have “Monday’s”…I have “Tuesday’s”…and they’re usually asshats)
What did I take the time to notice, thus minimizing and/or reducing my stress levels this week?
Colour. Still plastered by my awesome friends and followers on my Facebook wall.
Even the “Charlie Brown” tree amongst the rows of foliage that line the sidewalk we stand on for the school bus started to turn.
I love this little tree. Whereas the others are all so much bigger, have more leaves…more “presence”…this little dude of a tree keeps on keepin’ on.
I can relate to Charlie.
My littlest twin boy trying to shake off tape that had stuck to his hand whilst doing a craft. He has the most amazingly emphatic facial expressions. This was one that was not be missed.
My daughter rockin’ out to some bizarre song whilst sitting on the stairs up the landing. We have mirrors in our dining room. I could see her from where I sat, but she didn’t realize that I, in fact, was watching. Apple doesn’t fall far from *that* tree. 😉
That the release and transition of the new endeavour of my husband and myself went smoothly. Go, Go Interwebs and Servers and Stuff!
(Well, until I blew up the website when I was working in the editor. That may or may not have triggered fluid to leak from my ocular orbs.)
It’s really amazing how generous people are with their time. Having five kids, a job, and a couple of really important endeavours on my plate…coupled with a mo-fo autoimmune disease and a few syndromes’n’things for shits’n’giggles…I can totally relate to the value of TIME.
What did people do with their time?
They posted colourful images on my Facebook wall.
They took the time to read and share in my posts this week.
They clicked a “like” or hit a “retweet.”
You did this…by the very act of being here. That takes time. Your time.
The culmination of which came yesterday and today when I’d shared that WEGO Health had opened up the nominations for the WEGO Health Activist Awards.
And you know what happened? TIME happened. It was taken and used on that nomination form and by its very extension showed to me that what I do here matters to people.
I see that consequence of your time and it makes me want to keep on keepin’ on.
What made YOUR list of #gladitude this week? 🙂
