Life is full of curve balls. I have had many hit me recently. I try dodging them but I was never good at getting out of the way. I am fast but I have a tendency not to see them coming:)
So in order to cover the bruises of being hit by these bits of life, I find small ways to give myself joy or happiness. Doing for others makes me happy. Creating makes me happy. Accomplishing things makes me happy. Even ironing 5 pieces of the grumbling pile in the corner can make me feel better. Being productive makes me happy.
Sitting around contemplating bad luck, or old bad decisions(debt) does not help you. Moving forward and doing something does. Finding small ways to save money is an accomplishment. Working at something to make your life better or more beautiful will bring a sense of purpose in the chaos. Right now my twin is helping a neighbor every day work on an awful back yard. Sis will get to look at the beauty she helped create and also help a neighbor. Work is a blessing. Having a purpose is a blessing. Helping others blesses your life and smacks back the curve ball that just hit you. So if you are having a bad day ( like yesterday) or a bad month, try to do something for someone else. Or do something for yourself. Bake something, read something, plan something, dream something, produce something.
The shop was so busy yesterday and I struggled mightily to stay the course. Pretty proud of myself and also very tired today. I just want to sleep and sleep. Head achy, and having trouble breathing deep, hope I am not coming down with something:)
Well I am doing well at eating out of the pantry and such. Hub's however had to go to the store last night. We spent $32.00 approx. Breakfast cereal, and fresh fruit, a few things for mother. We were out of everything we bought so I felt okay about this. Also bought copper and silver polish. I use copper polish almost every day. ( I use it on my face:)
I have to complete two pageant items in the shop before I can start on the pile. Yes there is a pile. So today is a little laundry if I can get it in and finishing the pageant things. Then I have another wedding dress that needs to go out before the end of the week,the pile and continue working on my custom dress. I need to finish the bodice and I want to have the skirt done by the end of the week. I keep reminding myself that it is only Tuesday. I can do this if I am left alone. Yeah like that will happen.
I have a pile of curtains that I will fix for Lil sis when I can get to it. I love doing things to help her with her house, because I love to create. It gives my joy.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
