I’ve had a great week! Its been a mixture of small successes and the realisation that I have to put more work into some areas. Overall, I’m happy and I feel very positive about the future.
I’m cheerful because:
- using my adult colouring book not only makes me feel happy and relaxed, its opened up my creative side again. I’m now looking for supplies that I can use to dable a little with art. I’m not an artist but I do like art and I like being creative. Even if my end result is a stick man, at least its something I created as a away to express my self.
- I’m also having fun with an Instagram challenge under the hashtag #rockyourhandwriting. I stumbled upon a few days ago while exploring Instagram. I’m over the moon about. My handwriting is horrid! I don’t expect it to change over night but I’m finding using my hand again to write on a daily basis has made my hand more flexible if that makes any sense. Also, it will help me rediscover cursive writing which I have long forgotten how to do and I need to start assisting my son ASAP. I’m feeling more confident daily exploring the skill of writing by hand again.
- Last night I had the pleasusre of attending a product launch for one of my favourite haircare brands Boucleme. Boucleme is a UK Brand founded by Michele Scott-Lynch for curly hair types. Its range is 0% sulphates, silicones, mineral oils, petroleum, propylene glycol, PEGs, parabens, and artificial fragrances and colours which means my little girl and I can both use them. It was awesome to meet Michele for a a curl talk.
- I’m looking forward to visiting China Town with the family over the weekend. We don’t often get into the City as a family. It will be awesome to explore the shops and exhibition areas for Chinese New Year celebrations.
What’s making your cheerful this week? Maybe you had a rough week? How did you get through it? I’d love to hear from you.
