I've been practicing gratitude for 100 straight days! Yay me! I am definitely noticing a change in my attitude and how it is easier for me to find something to be grateful for each day. I still complain a lot, so I'll keep the project up for another 100, I suppose.
Yesterday I actually spent most of the day in bed because apparently a migraine and the stomach flu met and mated and the offspring attacked me. I didn't suffer gracefully, even though I have talked about how everything is a gift. The kids played well while Ben was gone for a bit, and he took over everything without complaint, so it was easy to recognize those gifts!
I did get to introduce the kids to my favorite childhood Disney movie, Aladdin, when I was feeling better in the afternoon. I still remembered all the songs and some of the dialogue. They didn't seem as impressed by it as I'd hoped, but there's still time!
