The Go-Giver


So this weekend the Thing’s School had a second hand book sale. It was aimed mainly at the kids, but there was a few adult books there – amongst which was The Go-Giver, a bargain at 50 cents – especially as it was in pristine condition.

 

If there’s one thing (and there’s lots) that I got out of reading it, is that it’s ok to receive. I’ve struggled with this. But as the book points out, without receiving there is no giving. So maybe it’s about time I started being more receptive?

Today’s #BrilliantThing Day 2 of 21


Today I realised I need to carry around a small notebook to capture everything. Anyway, here’s a brief synopsis

2nd day of my five minute journal – so far so good.

Meditated – twice

Hit my 10,000 steps

Walked the dog twice

2nd Easter Egg Hunt of the weekend

Managed to eat together with the Things at tea time

Thing 1 made her own Macaroni Cheese.

The Walking Dead will be on later

Wrote up my notes on the book I read this weekend

Cat didn’t get eaten by the Coyote in the Neighbourhood

Between the showers were some beautiful blue skies

Pesto, Mozarella and tomatoe on Ciabatte for lunch

Breakfast of eggs, spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes

 

Today’s #BrilliantThing Day 1 of 21


So here’s my next challenge- make a note of all the brilliant things that happen to me in a day. Why? So I can be grateful even for the little things that I take for granted.

Thanks to Vanessa Shaw and Neil Pasricha for the inspiration.

So here’s my list in a kind of chronological order.

Didn’t wake up till 8am

First dat in my 5 minute journal

Pancakes with the Things at school 

Bought a load of cheap books for me and the things for $10 at the school second hand book sale.

Got 2 pairs of boots for Thing 1 for $30 for Thing 1

Healthy salad at Panera

Meditated. Twice.

Hit my 10,000 steps.

Read a book
