Creating My Own Sunshine

by

I have had about 3 or more weeks fighting a bad cold, to then get very bad hay fever. I am over the feeling unwell and sneezing and I do feel zapped of energy and motivation. However in my messy house currently I am hoping to do some things for me. Due to being unwell, I have felt rather down and depressed. Silly but not unreasonable given the circumstances.

I am hoping to create some of my own sunshine to allow me to shine and feel good and happy. A bit of me time for my projects will allow this. Now to go and clean the dining room table to get stuck into my project. Image found on Pinterest.

I am hoping to get some sewing done to cheer me up. I am planning on doing some skirts for the girls, a skirt for me and pajama pants for myself as well.  (yes something for myself). However this project for me and of course the kids has not happened due to trying to get some housework done. By the time I whiz about and do the odd jobs I never get time for my things. Do you find this happens? I especially need a pick me up now due to being a bit out of sorts.

Don’t worry I am on the mend and hope all is getting better, however I am still sniffling due to hay fever I think and hope the cold is well and truly gone!

It is not grey hair, it is sparkles in your hair.

It is not grey hair, it is sparkles in your hair.

The other day Julia was looking at my hair. She must have spied a grey hair. I don’t have many and only about two, but loved what Julia called them. She said that they were sparkles in my hair. I would rather have sparkles than grey hair and thought that this is a nicer way of describing grey hair. So all of you that have grey hair, you have sparkles in your hair.

This made me smile and of course is another lovely thought to add to the sunshine in my day. It has also reminded me it is time to dye my hair again due to more sparkles appearing. Yes I would like to avoid sparkles for a bit longer if I can.

Stop worrying about your stresses and focus on your blessings.

Stop worrying about your stresses and focus on your blessings.

Lately I have been thinking about the troubles and stresses in my life and not looking at all that is good. I am very blessed and lucky for what I have. I need to stop worrying and just be. Do you do this as well? I know I DO!

What do you do to let more sunshine into your day? Do you meditate, relax, have a chat with mates, have some quiet time, sit in the garden, have flowers to look at, or do a bit of your favourite hobby? Maybe reading a good book is just what the doctor ordered?

Let us know what you do and maybe others will be inspired as well. Send in your comments.

    I’m sorry to hear you’ve been sick. I’ve been sick too and I’m now fighting another cold. I have one daughter with tonsillitis, another with a cold and a bub that likes to wake a lot during the night. I’m feeling so stretched and all I want to do is sleep so I can have the energy to look after my girls. I hear you on doing things for yourself but having housework take up that time. Sometimes you just have to let the housework go for one time so you can do what will help you feel better in the long run. I hope you start to feel on top of things soon.

      Hi Bec, I am sorry to hear that you and the kids are sick also. It is hard especially when all you want to do is crawl into bed. So hard when you have to solider on and look after everyone else as well as trying to get you better too! My twins had so many boughts of tonsillitis but since they had them out on Jan 20th they have been very well. Best thing that we have done for them. No more antibiotics and constant sickness. Yes the house work calls, however I have sat down and not done much today as like the rest of the week. Feeling drained still but getting there. Thanks and I am sending healing vibes to you as well. I hope to get to more things soon. 🙂

    Omg I have sparkles in my hair too! If I go between colours too long, I get loads of them! I will happily call them sparkles from now on. We have had one sickness after the other with our twin babies and I am chronically sleep deprived. With four kids and both of us working, we get so busy and stressed sometimes. I try to keep my perpective by thinking of the people around the world or even in our own country suffering from terrible things and remind myself to be so grateful for my first world problems. wishing you well!

      Hi Laney, Yes calling your grey hair sparkles is much nicer and happier. I think Julia is on to something here. I hope you all feel better soon. There seems to be something going around at the school and it seems like everyone is sick or recovering. Not good and I just hope that I get over it well and truly. Yes the issues are first world problems and nothing that cannot be fixed in time or with a change of thinking. Thanks for the comment and hope your twins feel better soon. Nothing worse that sick kids, and also a sick mummy.
