It is Friday once again. Bob and I swear that there are 5 of them each week here in Spain. They seem to come around so quickly. In my previous life I used to wish the work week away so that Friday would come and Bob and I could spend some much needed time together.
Now we don’t wish the days away. We enjoy each one or at least we try to. I’m not saying our life is perfect because it isn’t. Our life with each other is perfect. Yes, I said perfect. Perfect for us. It is the outside world that intrudes and wreaks havoc. But that is life.
It has been a pretty stressful week and today I am trying to put it behind me. Just focus on the positive. Taking time to breathe. Taking time to be grateful for the good in our lives. The outside world will always be there and the things that are causing us stress this week will be behind us soon. I will focus on simple pleasures. I will focus on breathing in and out. I will not let the outside world win. Not now. Not ever.
I will focus on this wonderful quote.
“So far, you’ve survived 100% of your worst days. This too shall pass.” ~ Unknown
I will focus on the little things in life that bring me joy. I will take time to be still. I will take time to breathe.
Life is too short to let the negative stuff crowd your mind. Let it go. Just breathe.
