Well, I missed March 1st for signing up on time for the Slice of Life challenge… and I’m writing my first post on March 2nd. (Fail.)
It’s easy to fall into negativity in a world that is so fast paced, full of pain, suffering, judgment… and task-oriented.
But it’s also full of love, joy, accomplishments, blessings and precious moments!
My whole life I’ve been somewhat of a wanna-be perfectionist and a people pleaser. I can be my worst critic and I beat myself up more than anyone else. It has been a personal intention lately to think about all the positives more, and focus on the negatives less. I am going to turn that thought process into my writing pieces for this month’s challenge.
So, what went RIGHT on Tuesday, March 1st, 2016? A lot.
I enjoyed teaching my daily lessons and ended my day still in a good mood, and not stressed out or over exhausted.
Interactions that I experienced with my coworkers were positive.
I was complimented by someone I respect.
For the most part, what needed to be completed by the end of the day, did.
I didn’t have lunch duty and was able to relax with a friend while I ate.
There was nasty winter weather outside, and we were warm inside the building.
I had a delicious home cooked lunch (leftovers from the night before).
I was told I am loved by my parents, separately. (Love 2 times!)
I shared pizza and wine for dinner with a new neighbor and enjoyed conversation, getting to know a nice person in the world.
I was healthy.
I saw smiles and heard laughs.
I went to sleep at night in a comfortable bed.
I did my best.
