Last week was just not my week. Things weren't jiving. Cracked cell phone, high vet bills, high court fees, messy house, teething baby, full moon, that whole bit. I was wondering if it could get any worse. But then that tooth popped out, the bills get paid, you start the laundry, checking things off your never ending list, and it all comes out in the wash. I love when the clouds part and you wonder why you were so up in arms over small things. I try to take problems in stride and never get into "crisis mode." Whether it's work or home life, hardly anything is really the "crisis" we make it out to be. It's hard to remember that sometimes. But I've never known any problem to not eventually work itself out. Never. (Although since I have a toddler, my house will ALWAYS be messy.) Being in the moment, getting to work, breathing, smiling, all these simple things make the biggest difference. Facing life with gratitude and a calm vibe does wonders for you sense of well-being.
San Diego seems to be on a roll with this beautiful weather, and we're not complaining. My garden could use a little love, and so a trip to the garden center is on the list. Baking, gardening, local adventures, and visits from dear friends are all on the horizon in the coming weeks, and I am so excited. Are you feeling Spring in the air? It's marvelous!
