Happy Sunday morning! I slept in a little bit and man it felt good.
I’ve got three things I want to share with you today….in no particular order.
1. Gratitude pumpkins!
A friend of mine posted this on Facebook and I LOVED the idea!! It would be so fun to do for Thanksgiving. What a great activity for younger kids, too. I believe the original idea (and photos) are from https://letslassothemoon.com/, which is a blog I’d never heard of but looks like a great parenting/ lifestyle resource with some really great and creative ideas!! Check it out!
2. Gratitude quote that stuck with me this week:
During a tough cardio workout the other day, the trainer (Jericho), for the Beachbody on Demand series that I’m currently doing (Morning Meltdown 100) said something during the cool down that I really liked. First of all, she was wearing a shirt that said “GRATEFUL” on it. Loved that, obviously. 🙂 But as we stretched, with sweat still dripping down my face, she said this:
“Does it make you feel alive? Does it make you feel grateful? Not everybody gets to move their body in the way you just did.”
I think about this often, how lucky we are to be able to jump and run and walk and stretch and just MOVE our bodies. Great quote and a great reminder!
3. And finally, I laughed at the truth of it when I saw this definition of multitasking this week. It definitely makes the case for mindfulness and focusing on one thing at a time whenever possible.
