On Monday before the snow came we went for a walk at dusk in the park. Martin had seen the beautiful sun setting whilst biking home from work and suggested a walk before tea. It was beautiful. I love dusk . It was so quiet and peaceful . The children for once seemed really calm and it was so uplifting.
Despite being of the opinion the positive thoughts create positivity and been full of good intentions of being happy and calm instead of stressed and shouty i have really struggled with feeling negative since the new year. Nothing really bad just a bit despondant and ' why do i bother' kind of thing , when i have asked the children to ' please can you put your shoes on ' for the umpteenth time only to be completley ignored when you know very well you have been heard. It doesn't do much for your self esteem to be constantly ignored or shouted at by someone your trying to help. Although maybe i'm guilty of that too.
This lovely walk seemed to help everyone feel more connected, with each other and give me the positive lift i needed .
