Keep Calm and Don’t Die

Image

I was feeling run down today. Just tired and discouraged in general. My new years resolutions for 2013 were to notice the goodness around and within me and to be my own advocate. So I decided to focus on those things once I got home from work. 

Goodness around me – my husband made me dinner, his shepherd’s pie recipe and pumpkin pie, too! He borrowed a toaster oven and we shared some of the pumpkin pie with friends here at the motel. 

Goodness within me – I’m good at my job and can stay calm under pressure. I understand the reasoning behind kids acting out and don’t take it personally. I appreciate positive things and can learn from the negatives. 

Be my own advocate – I’m grouchy when I’m tired, so a nap was in good order. Tomorrow’s Friday and I plan to get in some sewing time. 

And hey, if all else fails, remember this piece of advice that the three-year-old gave his screaming baby brother today: “Keep calm and don’t die.” Later, he gave the same advice to a toy car that flipped over.
