What are my reasons to be cheerful?

What has made my soul sing this week?


1. I have spent a lot of time this week evaluating where I am and where I want to be. Too often, mums can focus on the needs of everyone else and lose sight of their aspirations. There are things I want to achieve and I am determined to move forwards positively.

2. I have asked for help this week. Usually I am a natural helper and don’t find it easy to ask for support. This week I did. I am overwhelmed by the generosity shown by my online friends. Thank you.

3. I got up early this morning and enjoyed about 3 hours all to myself. How lovely silence is when you are in the middle of the long school holidays. I wish I could discipline myself to get up at least a hour earlier than everyone else in the family every day.

4. I am feeling very motivated. I find the more I do, the more I want to do.

5. I heard about good news from friends – a good holiday after a difficult year, pleasing A-Level results and so on. It is lovely to see things working out well for people.

6. Random words keep coming to me in a variety of ways. I am sure they are showing me my next path.

7. I think I just might be starting to believe in myself and in quite a big way.

So there you have my reasons to be cheerful.

What are yours?

    I read all that but the words that stand out are *staying to believe in myself*.

    Sat on my sofa, many miles away, I’m grinning. I believe in you, you have a bright future, full of good things, I’m sure xxxxx

    Glad you are starting to believe in yourself. Plenty of others do, as you believe and support others. It’s time to think of you and believe. Truly believe.
