Our day started off like any other day.....me rolling out of bed as my dear husband yelling "get out of bed, I'm going to be late for work!"
As I run to my daughters room, throwing clothes on and searching for my keys at the same time, I realize that I can only find one shoe....seriously people, how on earth does a 35 year old lose one shoe!!! isn't that something a toddler does???
we finally make it out the door and into the car (with me barefoot) and drop the hubby off for work with 3 minutes to spare ( yay), make my way home and rush around and start to get my daughter dressed and ready for the day!
We were supposed to be out the door by 9am, and on our way to see my mom in St. Peters, HOWEVER......9am comes and goes,
9:30 and we are finally walking out the door!!
In the rush of sleeping late, and running around like a mad women, chasing her little crazy chick around the house, I forgot to feed us......Thank God for Mcdonalds!!!
Its funny how crazy mornings like this can either derail your whole day or make you thankful for everything around you!
We had 2 hours to drive, so instead of being stressed and freaking out because I was running late, I decided to make the best of our morning, so I turned up Francesca Battistelli and we started singing at the top of our lungs!!
We laughed and goofed off the whole way there, I'm sure we were a sight to see, dancing and making goofy faces to all the cars passing.
Just by making the decision to not care how my day started, and to make the best of it, we completely turned our day around. We had a great visit with my mom and sister and her family, we made some great memories and had a lots of fun.
I could have let my stressful morning make my whole day stressed, but I chose to change my attitude and therefore I changed the outcome of our day, and if your like me, If your stressed then those you love are stressed out as well.
Making an effort to look at the world and everyone and thing around me,and make the most of every moment (even when you are in a crazy rush) can be the biggest game changer in your life. It makes you pause and be thankful for each and everything.
Today I was thankful for little girl giggles, waving at the construction workers, impromptu periscopes about traffic, holding my daughters hand as we drove across a bridge, and most importantly spending quality time with my daughter!
Things can drive us crazy, but it doesn't have to make us crazy :)
Enjoy the moments you are in, they are worth your full attention!
