Thursday Thoughts: I want More





More Fresh Food- Food that I have to cook and put together. Less food from boxes. Less processed junk and more of the things that make me feel good both inside and out. 

More Me time- Self care is important. I tend to put myself last, like pretty much all mom's tend to do...but I still deserve time to myself and for myself. I deserve some things that are completely selfish and just about me. I need to take more time for myself and thereby decrease the amount of stress that I put on myself.

More Unplugged Time- This applies to Kyra as much as it does myself.  I admit that when I am working on blog posts or writing or just surfing Pinterest that she is often on the iPad watching YouTube Kids. We need to decrease our screen time for both of us and spend more time together reading and singing and being present.

More laughing- I make no secret of how hard these past weeks have been for me. I have cried so much that I honestly feel as though I could have filled oceans, but life continues on and I want to remember to laugh at the silly things and remember all the good that there is in life. There is so much to be grateful for and I don't want to miss it!

More Mindful- This goes hand in hand with being grateful and actually goes with another post that I am working on for next week. I want to be a part of the things that I am doing. Even if it is simply sitting and watching a movie with Kyra, I want to be there and in that moment with her. As an introvert I spend a lot of time in my own mind working things out and at times I can distance myself from just what is happening in the now. I want more of the NOW. 


What are some things that you want MORE of??

  1. Sometimes I think we forget how to laugh. And all it takes is something small to get us going again. Hope you find that this week.

  2. I want to be more grateful for my life. I mean, I'm pretty grateful already, but I like being fully aware.
