Week #2 – Good, Bad and Ugly

Week: June 30-July 6th

What was GOOD this week? Canada Day was by far the best part of the week. We had a fantastic time on Vacation and despite a few bumps, my kids had a great time celebrating. Each year I love the opportunity to celebrate all that we have in Canada. I’m don’t dress all up and make a big deal about it but I’ve always taken a moment to pause and be thankful. Watching my girls run around and discover that, “Tinkerbell is real daddy, did you know… did you know daddy” (people were dress-up), I realize just how much I have to be thankful for, and in this season that’s important. 

What was BAD this week? Being away meant that I was removed from the situation. Coming home meant that I had to return to conversations and explaining what’s going on to people who were just finding out. 

What was UGLY this week? Like I said last week letting go is not always easy. Most of the week was fine, but then a situation or conversation would spark a feeling both good and bad. Nonetheless a feeling and feelings can be powerful and hard to manage. 

How’s your HEART doing? Over all if I had to give it a rating out of 10 I would give it a 7. However, if I’m 100% honest, most of that was due to vacation. 

NEW: What’s making me happy this week? This week I started two things that make me happy. First I tried a new recipe and have decided to dust off the old FATJESSE blog. Second I’ve decided that while I’m off I’m going to watch all the Star Wars movies from Ep1 through Ep8 and the 2 extras in between. I’ve got 2 down and 8 to go, I feel confident it’s going to be a good few weeks.
