It’s a common phrase isn’t it?…
Bad things come in 3’s
or words similar to that!
So, let’s flip it (you know how I love to turn a negative into a positive!)
Let’s find 3 things to be happy and grateful for!
(or even more… I mean, why not?!)
In my new weekly feature, I will look back over my gratitude journal and bring to you my #HighlightsofHappy , which is great because it gives me the opportunity to look back and be grateful all over again 🙂
I will then round it off with one word that sums up my happy.
So, what am I happy and grateful for this week?
For playing word games with our daughter ~ she asked for paper and then we were playing ‘hangman’ but without the little hangman sketch. It was very impromptu and such a simple, happy moment. It also made me feel warm and fuzzy because it made me realise just how good she is at spelling. (#ProudMummyMoment right there!)
Science experiments ~ while I was sorting tea after school one night, our girl started to do experiments in the sink with water, pepper and soap. She was trying to replicate an experiment she saw in Whizz Pop Bang magazine. I love it when she goes into her own little exploring world of experiments!
Glittery hair ~ Before we went on holiday, we got some de-tangler for those inevitable times that the sea air, swimming pool, sea water and goodness knows what else got into our daughter’s hair. It was pretty useless actually but that’s by the by. She loves it now and decided she wanted to put in her hair while she had a bath… the night before the school photos. Luckily it fell out in bed!
Nails ~ I posted a little pic of my wonderful nails over on Instagram this week. What was so wonderful about them? Our daughter turned into a nail salon and created bunnies (yes, they’re bunnies on my nails!). My fingers seemed very bare when I took the nail varnish off (which took a while with all those layers of varnish…)
Tag ~ Oh, it’s such a simple, easy thing to some people quite possibly but I was over the moon when my #HighlightsofHappy tag got used over on Instagram. In a recent productivity course, I set my blog goals down. (You can sign up for it with Aby at YouBabyMeMummy). One of my goals is to grow my IG and I came up with the #HighlightsofHappy tag to follow the positive, happy, zen vibe of my blog (and compliment this weekly post too). I’m a happy #instablogger 😉
And going back to the nails, I was very happy and grateful that I had put the duvet up at our little girl’s window for night-time before she did my nails! (We recently swapped rooms and haven’t got round to the blackout blind yet, so the duvet makes do for now!)
We celebrated my Gran’s 90th birthday with a family gathering. It was at the same place that our daughter was a bridesmaid last year and her dress still fits her (just), so she wore that and we all got dressed up. Lovely!
My happy word this week is ‘beautiful’ because with nails, dresses and glitter, there’s a definite beauty theme this week!
How about you? I’d love to hear about your ‘happy’ in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere using #HighlightsofHappy
