While my two month old daughter may not be old enough to hold a paint brush she "paints" the only way she knows how and it gets a clear message across. I had dressed her in an outfit today that said "I love daddy." as I feared after her doctor appointment this afternoon she may not be too happy with me. My daughter, in response, spit a good portion of her breakfast all down the front of it. And then she smiled at me. The message, I'm being silly and I need to let it go.
So today I am repainting my expectations. I'm remembering that this child and I are bonded in a way that nothing can break. I'm remembering that I get a choice in how I perceive the day and that my sweet little girl picks up on my energy so it is important that I create it in a positive way.
I'm grateful for this reminder. I'm grateful for the message straight from my daughter's lips. (haha) I'm grateful to remember that I am creating my reality and today will be another great day! I'm grateful for the sweet smile on her face and the one tugging at the corners of my lips. I'm grateful for this day. I'm grateful for the opportunity to trust my judgements and trust in the decisions that were not made lightly. I'm grateful for a pediatrician who is patient with new parents. And I'm grateful for painting a a day of fun with my sweet girl.
What are you painting today? What opportunities are presenting themselves? Is there something that needs re-painted?
May today support all our creativity. May we paint from the heart and may it turn into a positive creation. Have a beautiful day!
