On my mind lately ?
And two words : Blessing Minded .
It's been a pretty easy thing for me in the past months to have doubts in the way that life is going .
Things are SO good, but still, so many questions to ask .
Are we really ready for a baby ?
Should I have really quit my job ?
Should we really live where we live ?
Will all of these years of my boy's school really pay off in the end ?
Am I really living up to my potential ?
Will be really be fine financially ?
It's easy to push out the little blessings of each day when my mind is so wrapped into these .
But earlier this month, the day before my boy | my love began his first day at dental school, he left me a little gift on the kitchen table . Sweet , sweet boy - ready to begin what will be one of the most challenging + milestone-ish parts of his life, after he has worked SO hard to get here - buying M E a gift .
Nonetheless, a beautiful gold locket lay in front of me .
A blessing in itself, as it took my boy looking at nearly 40 different lockets in different antique stores to be able to find the perfect one, though chainless . So he worked to find the perfect chain as well .
And a note lay there too :
It's the end of something good,
and the start of something G R E A T .
Wear this to remember how blessed we are .
Inside my locket now, that I wear nearly E V E R Y single day, I have a photo of my boy + I on one side + a photo of our sweet babe .

Blessing Minded .
I decided I wanted to be just that . S O much more than I am each day .
Being mindful of the abundance of blessings in my lives . In the lives of those around me .
Not giving up on asking the earlier questions - there will be plenty more I'm sure - but remembering in the midst of them all, how blessed I am . We are .
To be living where we live | Knowing who we know | Loving who we love |
Feeling how we feel | Moving how we move | Doing what we do .
Blessings first in my mind . Before the worries and doubts and questions .
Our blessings aren't questionable in the least .
So blessing minded I am today . And blessing minded I will strive to be tomorrow .
