Mission Acceptance - Accept the good in your life


Thank you for being here! Thank you for reading this post! Thank you for spreading your wonderful light into the world. In case I haven't made it clear, this week's mission was all about giving thanks. Last week I wrote about love and I found that love can feel a bit empty if you don't also recognise all the beautiful things in your life. So my mission was to make a list each evening of the things I was grateful to have in my life - you know the trees and the bees and the far reaching seas. Easy peasy. 

It started well, on night one I was grateful for my son and my husband and my cat and my new extremely fluffy bed socks but night two felt a bit awkward, cheesy even. I like cheese on toast and on the dance floor but in my personal journey - no. This sparked something wonderful. Determined to have authentic experiences to write about each evening, I started hunting throughout the day - clocking the considerate bus driver and the joyful energy emitted from my neighbours signing to each other over the fence and the wonderful, ridiculous sound of my son's throaty chuckle. 

Of course, I couldn't keep these discoveries to myself and when I found them I would point them out to my boy. The only thing that made gratitude better was sharing it and hopefully if I keep it up he'll do the same for me one day. 

What have you been grateful for this week? 

This month is blogger month on the Moderate Mum so every Sunday I'm giving away a bloggy prize and on Tuesday, I'll be sharing a blogging related post. Every blogger needs a 'Go away I'm blogging' mug, so this week's prize is a 'Not on the High Street' voucher so you can snap up one for yourself.
