10 good things in 10 days | Finding the Bright Side

In the last week my world has been shaken to the core.

In case your wondering, that’s why I haven’t shared in a while. I haven’t found the perfect words to tell you how I feel. It’s nerve-wracking really. All of a sudden, I feel like I’m back to square one and don’t know where to begin… Even so, “you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.” I know that no matter how bad it seems, there is and will always be ‘good’ in our world. If there’s one thing I’ve learned so far, it’s that the universe gives back what you give out. I’m just in awe of the amount of good I am still finding while enduring such a sorrowful time.

I thought I’d focus on ’10 good things’ that have happened to me in the last 10 days.’

  1. My son signed “thank you” to a deaf friend.
  2. I’ve made beautiful new friends.
  3. My toddler sang “You are my sunshine” to me.
  4. We continued a new family tradition.10 Good Things in 10 Days
  5. I noticed strangers smiling at me.
  6. A stranger left an unbelievably kind note on my car.

I’m sorry for your loss/argument/self doubt/debt/loss of job/family problems. I just hope your day turns around. Someone cares just for you. It’s ok.”

  7. My mum stayed with us & helped with P, A LOT.10 Good Things in 10 Days

  10. I felt so loved by everyone around me.

Sometimes things happen in your life that begin to shift your perspective. Things that make you stop & THINK. Things that make you “stop & smell the roses” more. That make you notice the beauty around you in an all-consuming way. Sometimes these things are lessons that you haven’t fully absorbed yet but you begin to notice them… You want to be more kind to the woman handing you your coffee, you want to hug your loved ones longer, smile more, live with more purpose… Follow Your Bliss.

I am STRONG. I will LEARN from this. I will follow my BLISS. And, when your world shakes – You will find strength, learning & a bright side too…
