I changed it up !

My previous blog was about changing the course of a moment, a day, a week and so on.  Yesterday I chose to change the way my day was going.  You see it could have been the usual routine with my 14 month old baby girl.  I had just written my morning post called “Change it up” and began to wonder how I could change my day.  As the day progressed, household responsibilities consumed my thoughts.  And then I began cooking and attending to all baby needs.  I understand that there are things in our day, that must get done.  Yet there are also things we can let go of, at least for a while.  So around 2 pm I was feeling sluggish and bored of the same routine.  It dawned on me that I wrote a post about the very thing I was experiencing yesterday morning.

Yet, no matter how much I wanted to change my day, it wasn’t happening.  Why? I began to ask myself.  And I realized that cognitively I was stuck in the same thought pattern, but emotionally I was ready to move forward.   So what did I do?  I changed my thoughts to match my emotions and “Viola!!!”, I had a much better day.  So did my sweet baby girl!  Why?  Because Olivia (our daughter) and I went outside and had a picnic with snacks enjoying the beautiful weather.  She even got to play with her friend across the street.  Did I mention that I also had a great workout walking with her up and down our drive way.  We both had our needs met enjoying sunshine, play and snacktime.  A win- win!

I must share photos of our beautiful baby girl enjoying snack and her pink swing!  When you decide to change-up something in your day or week, feel free to share on feedback form below!  I’d like to know you changed your day.

Be Well,  Kimberly
