Is it just me or is anyone else feeling the “after holiday blues?” Yep, memories of fireworks and the waft of the grill are slowly fading away. I’m already thinking about the next big thing, a vacation, a birthday, another holiday. My mind starts to dream about the end of the summer and the beginning of fall and what that will bring. I let myself get carried away into the future and then a wave of worries take over. Money, family, career, you name it. I’ve thought about it and indulged in it. Before I know it, the day is gone.
How unfortunate that we let time get the best of us and how easy it is to succumb to things like stress, worrying and negative thinking. Although it’s quite normal, it would be wonderful to catch myself in the act and stop the thoughts before it starts. And in some ways, I have. Reading our blogs here has given me reason to pause and refocus my attention. Another thing that has proved influential is reading your comments on Facebook this week. Learning what random acts of kindness you’ve engaged in or observed have proved to be truly uplifting. Thanks for that!
And for you, here are another round of posts that will hopefully help you become more mindful and grateful, less anxious, and have a giggle or two. Have a great weekend!
