Weekly Gratitude 5/52

Weekly Gratitude 5/52

Gratitude looks very pleasant on the outside, but requires a lot of work on the inside. When I thought I would do the weekly gratitude posts this year, I was excited. I really wanted to note down everything I am thankful for, anything that makes me happy. What I realized as I write this is that I under estimated the power of gratitude.

šŸ’— Gratitude isn’t appreciating the fancy things, it is about feeling intrinsically thankful for the good and the bad in our lives. Sure it isn’t easy. To me, it was a tough choice many times. Today I feel different after realizing this.

šŸ’— Most days I am thankful for being able to run the chores at home and taking care of things that is needed just then.

šŸ’— This week, I am particularly interested in praying for all those moms and dads who single parent their children. I am currently in that situation since hubby is away at work, but to do that everyday for years, you are brave souls. I pray you find great partners(in case you are looking for one) or do what you do bravely that you look back at your life feeling accomplished.

šŸ’— The last two weeks have been fun, tiring and fulfilling in ways I didn’t expect. I returned from my Ooty Trip this week and all I could think was about the night’s sleep on my bed. By morning I was fresh and we sat and talked about the lovely times. I was thrilled about the pictures and immediately went to print the pictures.

šŸ’— Thanks to mobiles, we all have an alarming list that is difficult to fulfill in a day. I managed to sort 110 pictures and the tech guy at Konica labs managed to sort them, align them and print them for me in 3 hours. I felt that was great and thanked him for his efficient work.

šŸ’— I am trying to incorporate the Power of 3 in my daily life. It is about accomplishing 3 tasks in a day. Though we have 100’s of other tasks to take care of, these 3 will make your day. I am glad to make it happen on some days and on others I am not loosing my cool and moving them to the next day without guilt. After all, when I wake up the next day I have something to look forward to right!

šŸ’— I always focus on using less water, but this week’s a little tough. I am finding ways to use lesser water. I wish to find ways to use water efficiently.

šŸ’— I was gifted a small diary by my mom since I am a valuable / repeat customer of hers. I decided to use it as my gratitude journal. It comes handy and I love writing in it. It is definitely not fancy, it is the normal yearly diary, but it has what I need!!

šŸ’— Ilakkiya had an amazing time in Ooty aka Queen of Hill stations, I wish I can write a separate post about the trip.

šŸ’— Finally made time to write this post!! It has been a week since I wrote something on the blog.

šŸ’— To those of you who noticed, the blog is undergoing changes and finally moved to a new home. Thankful to wonderful friends who are taking this effort to help me.

šŸ’— February is here and so is the planning on my bullet journal. I love it!!

That’s it folks!! How are you doing this week?
