Feeling Optimistic – My Ordinary Moments

Feeling Optimistic – My Ordinary Moments

It has been a really busy week in our house, hubbie is snowed under with work, I feel like I am drowning in a sea of washing and chores, Meme is still tired from our road trip at the weekend and Harri has been poorly the last couple of days so not a lot of sleep has been had – it has been a long one.

Regardess of this, I woke up this cloudy Saturday morning and I feel content, I am not sure if it was the warm sunshine yesterday or hubbie finishing work early and going for an evening walk with the girls, or maybe even our weekend away at the beach but I feel happy. Don’t get me wrong, everything is far from perfect, we all know what it is like to have a sick child and I definitely have been feeling overwhelmed of late. After many cancellations, Harri has her operation on Tuesday (you can read about it here), but instead of feeling worried and scared, like I have been the past few months, I am starting to feel positive, positive that after Tuesday it will all be over with and we can move on from this chapter of Harri’s life instead of having it looming over us.

After a bit of a rocky start to the year I feel like I’m finally starting to feel like me again, I feel like I am starting to get my sparkle back and feel a little more confident about everything. I feel ready to get back to the gym and I’m excited about making some plans for the summer. I have always been a optimist (annoyingly so at times), always looking on the bright side of life, but when things go wrong it is hard to see the light at times and when you have children there is so much to worry and feel anxious about it, is so easy for things to get on top of you. However, I am making an effort to not worry about what can’t be changed or what hasn’t happened. There is no point, my aim is to focus on solutions rather than problems.

So a little bit of an awakening week I guess. I have woken up this morning surrounded by my family and I am feeling thankful and lucky and ready to take on the world!

  1. Hope Tuesday goes well & your positive attitude will rub off on everyone. I feel like I’m drowning in laundry here but like you I’ve decided, it’s inly clothes and they aren’t the centre of the universe if they are hung up instantly!
    Have a great Sunday xx #theordinarymoments

  2. Aw what a lovely post with a very positive attitude. I definitely think just trying to have a positive attitude helps. I also think the fact that there are definitely the tale tell signs of spring in the air helps too. Hope Tuesday goes well. x

  3. I know too well how life can feel heavy and that we do worry more when our little ones are in the mix. I think we just want to do such a good job with them, that when life isn’t great or high stress is it going to affect them? Will they remember or pick up on it? Its such a relief when you start to feel normal again and get your sparkle back…hope it stays!
    Enjoy it and all the best for Tuesday, anxious times and hope it goes well x

  4. What a lovely positive post to read! I’m so glad you’re feeling so much more upbeat and the sunshine appearing and the lighter evenings all help, don’t they? Hope the operation goes well next week.
