Chose to stay home while the hubby took the kids for a bike ride. I needed the quiet!

Cleaned out the food pantry. Will make it easier to plan meals and actually prepare it!

I did make myself stop for 10 minutes this afternoon just to sit down and rest before all the people arrived for playgroup. I really needed that as I had been going since I woke up this morning!

I stayed busy doing little tasks that will make this weekend much easier. For me...that is kindness!

Today I stayed home instead of trying to fight a cold and go to work. I just let myself relax a little, and took a nice nap.

I WANTED a nap today, but chose to exercise instead while my daughter took her nap...because I had a bit too much to eat at lunchtime.

THAT was being kind to my waistline!!

I am always putting everyone's else's needs ahead of mine and so I find solace in eatin junk...today it has been chocolate. Maybe if I find a few moments to cherish me, even in little ways, I won;t be so tempted! Thanks!

I let my want for us to get school started this morning be pushed aside as the kids were playing so nicely and wanted more time.

Ok, this is a great thing to focus on! Slow down and savor the moments of life...they fly by too fast! I am going to get off the computer and go kiss my toddler's cheeks until she pushes me away and says "done!"

I'm keeping my hair appointment despite knowing that other things can be handled with the money. Well, we're not going to go hungry, the lights aren't going to be cut off, and the rent has been paid...it's ME TIME!

I'm in...it's hard to live in the now and to cherish the moment. But we do need to slow down and smell the roses. My daughter just asked me to play a game with her, I'm going to go enjoy the time with her.

I backed off correcting behavior at an all school assembly and just shared in the pure joy of kids loving music and a good time. Guess what, they behaved anyway! There's a lesson in there somewhere.

I am still smiling!

I'm in. I have been too hard on myself lately for not getting back into the swing of things hardcore like I was before I got pregnant. It is hard to get back into it with three kids, but this morning I forgave myself for not doing my 15 minutes of fitness last night like i had planned.

We all know that we can be harder on ourselves than anyone so with that in mind I'm offering this challenge...

Be kind to yourself. Go easy on you. Remember how far you have come, and all you have done. Focus on life and love and relationships. Focus on what really matters, because you never know when it will be gone. The only constant in life is change. Embrace it and who knows how high you will soar.

How have you cherished the moment today?

Janet
