Word of the Week #WotW

It is so difficult with these weekly updates that life focuses on the best or the worst.

And yet, in this instance it really has been the best and the worst of weeks.

I worked last Friday, my first day back, and whilst it felt like a Monday all day, it meant this week I felt really prepared for the week ahead.

I had some news at work that allowed me to be hopeful, and resulted in me opening up to someone as the time was right, it triggered a migraine which was further aggravated by an email that whilst expected still allowed everything to resurface and insomnia to reign.

Coping mechanisms have been learned over the past year, and I removed myself from everything, and focused on happy.

Whilst life can be mediocre, whilst bad things happen, you can choose good, you can try your best to choose happy.

And so, today, hubby’s birthday, we have celebrated simply and with so much excitement from the little people and much happiness.

And I have been tolerated by my husband, our wonderful boys turn 4 next week, and we are celebrating on Sunday with a soft-play party (control your grimace!). I have spent my time wisely, party-planning a 4 year-olds Ninjago heaven, and whilst he does nod along, he has been impressed with my Lego crayon, chocolate and fudge bricks, I am sure.

So, for those of today and those of next week, I choose my word of the week:

    After a challenging time at work, it’s great that you’ve found coping mechanisms and still come to the end of the week smiling and using a positive word. Glad you had a good celebration, and I hope the soft play party is a huge hit – I’m sure it will be! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x
