Friday: Play!–Take a Smile Stroll
I have to be honest, this week I have felt not so “smilie”. I have spent the past 18 weeks working towards my goal of running a marathon and with only 5 weeks left I have to stop. I also have to now go to two different specialists to help myself learn to walk correctly and build up the strength in my right foot. I most definitely cannot run the marathon in May and it has me a bit down.
So mostly it was myself that needed to remember how lucky I am, to stop the moping and start the smiling! Which is why today we took a “Smile Stroll” where we took a walk to talk about and point out the things that make us happy.
What Made Us Smile Today
-The clouds at the top of the mountains
-A wave from Abby’s best friend
-A cheerful hello for the sweet man across the street
-An enthusiastic I LOVE YOU run and hug
-Holding my baby’s hand who is finally finally finally walking
-Being able to stay home with my two best friends
-Seeing Daddy’s smiling face while he drives by excited to see us
Just simple things to put my problem into perspective and to teach my daughters to be positive thinkers.
