If you've never had a gratitude journal or as I have dubbed mine..a "little happies journal" I encourage you to start one. It's really powerful to scribble down all of the little things you're grateful for each day. It has opened my eyes to what it really is that drives me and makes me happy. I've found that it's usually the simplest of things that fulfill me.
The anticipation of a weekend with my mom in town.
And the fact that I have the type of husband who leaves me love notes.
And being around kids again. I didn't realize how much I missed little beings. And being with kids again means bringing out the "Mary Poppins" bag filled with goodies like my favorite children's books and the very thing that just may have inspired me to become a teacher. Hello yummy smelling markers. :)
What are some of your little happies? I'd love to hear!
