Highlight of the week?

The highlights of my week are currently getting new cleaning products, receiving new cloth nappies in the post and disinfecting our groceries on shopping day 🤣😂.
 
On this particular day pictured below, the highlight was stopping by a comfy cafe to rest my feet after a random trip to explore a new town with hubby. I love travelling this beautiful planet 🌍, and I miss it.

Kicking Down Doors

One of my fave quotes in Loves Does by Bob Goff in LOVE DOES is:⁣

“I USED TO THINK THAT GOD GUIDED US BY OPENING AND CLOSING DOORS,⁣ BUT NOW I KNOW SOMETIMES GOD WANTS US TO KICK SOME DOORS DOWN

Usually, I’d attribute a quote like this to new business or academic opportunity or some great legacy-building-bossbabe move. In the book, Bob is talking about being determined to get into law school after failing his exams.⁣

BUT if you’re in lockdown right now, like me, you may need to apply the sentiment of this quote to some BASIC everyday stuff. You may have to be willing to KICK AND FIGHT your way out of:⁣

• feelings of Depression⁣

• feelings of Boredom⁣

• feelings of Fear⁣

• feelings of Loneliness⁣

• feelings of Abandonment⁣

• feelings of Being Stuck⁣


It might take effort to kick down doors and enter a space with:⁣

• an attitude of GRATITUDE⁣

• the pleasure of JOY⁣

• a vision of HOPE⁣

• the evidence of FAITH⁣

• good MENTAL HEALTH


I’m not sure what taking action looks like for you. For me today it was enjoying an hour-long walk on my own, in the sunny breeze. It did wonders for my skin, my mind, and mood. ⁣

“A merry heart does good like a medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones” – The Bible⁣

I know which one I want to be.

    I agree with you totally. It’s so important to feel gratitude and make a point to look towards the positive. Otherwise you can get swallowed up by all the negativity. 🙂 Thank you!

    Great way to keep positive. Being pregnant in a pandemic must be very difficult. It seems like you have found a good way to keep your health and mood up.

    Your attitude during this time is huge. It is challenging enough to balance hormones and pregnancy, but takes even more tenacity now.
