Thank God it's Friday!(1)

I have decided to start a new feature on Fridays! As I’ve been continuing to read through The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown I discovered that in the past she has done TGIF posts:

I believe a joyful life is made up of joyful moments gracefully strung together by trust, gratitude, inspiration, and faith.

For those of you who follow my blog, you’ll recognize this as the mantra for my gratitude posts on Fridays that I call TGIF….a weekly post about what I’m Trusting, what I’m Grateful for, what Inspires me, and how I’m practicing my Faith. p81

I love this idea and trust that Brené won’t mind me using it! I must say though that as a mother to three young children who are all in school I often feel extra grateful when Monday comes around…especially while I’ve been a solo parent due to my husband being overseas. Anyway, here goes….

  • This week I’m Trusting that my husband will arrive home safely this coming week.
  • I’m Grateful I’ve been given a place on a counselling course which will train me to be a therapist, a long held dream of mine.
  • I’ve been reminded this week, during a number of conversations, that everyone has a story and how much we all need encouragement. I’ve been Inspired to become more aware of others….Emma Soul puts it well in her post titled Trust the process. I recommend you head over and have a read.
  • I’m practicing my Faith by believing that I will be given the wisdom I need to be a good mum to my children. Parenting is a challenge…even more so now they are getting older and need more emotional support than practical.

How about you? What are you trusting, grateful for and inspired by this week? How are you practicing your faith? I look forward to reading your comments.
