Little positives.

Happy Thursday everyone! Also, happy Independence Day to any American readers. As promised, a little post today to make up for the lack of one on Monday. Still trying to get my head around the fact the week is nearly over already but whatever, I'll get there eventually. In light of all the stress and negativity (stemming from myself) that's been circling around me lately, I wanted to take a brief moment to reflect on the little positives that have been shining through my grey clouds.

Firstly, Vala got her Year 1 class placement the other day and yesterday had her transition day. She moved up to her new class for half the day and absolutely loved it. She likes her new teachers, has a bunch of her friends with her (including her best friend) and she loves her new classroom. I'm really happy that she's happy and that her and her best friend have been kept together. They've been together since the first day of nursery and have developed a close bond which is lovely to see.
The next little positive is that my Race at your Pace medal arrived this week! It's bigger than I expected it to be but it's beautiful and I love it. I wore it around the house the other day and have the certificate that came with it, on my desk. I've started the 50 mile challenge this month and I'm eager to complete it so I can get another beautiful medal to feel proud about.

On the boys front, Flynn is still his usual cheeky, mischievous self but he is learning more and and more each day. He is starting to identify parts of his body and can now accurately point to his belly button and nose when asked. He has also started singing more and the house is often filled with the sound of his loud voice. I wouldn't have it any other way. Jordan is pretty much the same as he always is but he did apply for a new job which is a plus. We're still waiting to hear back about a potential interview but I am still proud of him for applying. Applying for new jobs makes him anxious as he, like me, doubts himself and his abilities and never feels like he'd be good enough for the job. So the fact he found the strength within to throw his name into the hat, is a big positive that deserves recognition.

There has been a lot of stress on my mind lately and my mood definitely hasn't been great but I know that as long as I keep an eye out for them, little positives are all around me. My family are my little rays of sunshine that get me through dark days. I love them all so much and I'm really happy to see them all doing so well.

Until next time,
