What’s in your name that’s FABULOUS?
May is nearly over and like every other May I can remember since having children, it’s been crazy and just shy of out of control. We’ve taken a family poll and by vast majority vote, this has been the fastest school year in the history of the universe. We do not exaggerate. I find as the school year races to the finish line, our lives sort of spin out of control, or at least mine does. Too much to do resulting in too much set aside for later. All those things I’m setting aside, well, they’ve piled up and are now hovering over my head threatening to bury me.
I started to sort the piles of accumulated tasks and ran across the homemade Mother’s Day card my daughter made for me. In that moment of feeling totally overwhelmed and defeated, I was reminded of what someone else thinks of me. It was a moment of clarity that I needed to take stock, regroup and prepare to move forward minus the frantic crankiness.
The fact that I have an abundance of activities in my life is proof we’re living a full life, a life full of blessings. It’s time to hit the reset button and get back to basics.
Breathing. Thanking. Loving. Laughing. Praying. Being.
Let me share her card with you so you can see why it put a huge smile on my face and was just the hug I needed on this overwhelming Monday.
I LOVE this back page and I’m totally not going to bust her on her little spelling error.
This got me thinking. Maybe you all need this sort of pick me up. For fun, let’s all write out our names with a positive attribute for each letter. Notice I said POSITIVE … no negative, self-hating, insults allowed. Be kind to yourself. Love yourself.
Every letter in your name is something else wonderful about you. Prove it!
Even though I adore my daughter’s version, I’ll do one for myself since I want to play too.
G – Grateful
I – Intense
N – Ninja (just let me use Ninja—it’s special to me!)
G – Genuine
E – Expressive
R – Resilient
Ok, now it’s your turn. I can’t wait to see all those beautiful letters spelling out your wonderful, fabulous selves in my comments!!
