Grace in Small Things – Vol. 8

I used to do something like this where I’d post something good about every day. Some days that was hard, but I usually managed to find something good about a day – even if it was that I didn’t punch someone in the face.

Some days are better than others, what can I say?

This year, I’m taking a different approach and posting 10 things I loved about this week.

Last week was a very difficult week. Several stressors added up and multiplied until Friday, those cracks I’ve been so careful to hold together just fell apart.  I do believe that there were many good things, small things that I will try to remember so that I can forget the shaking, hot, sobbing mess that I was Friday night.

Here’s the eighth list of Things I loved from last week (aside from my dear dear friends who pulled me kicking and screaming through the week…even if they didn’t know they were doing it):

  1. Texts from my G-d Mother of my nephew passed out in silly spots. See?100MEDIA36IMAG0881
  2. Work friends who come through in a pinch to cover you so you can have a day off
  3. Train rides (I love the T. It was seriously one of the reasons I wanted to move to Boston)
  4. A boss who will laugh with  me at the ridiculousness in my life
  5. Getting to close to having lost 15 lbs I can taste it.
  6. Swimmers making huge progress
  7. Nice people to volunteer with
  8. Flip flops and slippers when I can’t wear an actual shoe
  9. Positive feedback
  10. Grapefruit and/or Mandarin Seltzer

What did you love about this week?

  1. a most excellent list of things to be grateful for!

  2. I did something similar in the month of May and tried to find one small moment of each day that I appreciated it. It was a stressful month, and it really helped me keep a more positive perspective!

    This week I loved that I no longer had to study (I spent the last 5 months studying 5-6 days/week), running with my running group, dancing with my nephews at a cousin’s wedding, and catching up with my parents.
