Thoughts On Monday.

Rounding up the weekend. Tying up loose thoughts in my mind.. 

I want this tattoo.. I love the meaning behind having an arrow tattoo. 

"An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming"

I've been thinking a lot this past weekend about how I compare myself to others. It's easy to do with sites such as Instagram, Facebook & Pinterest. What I need to remember though is that person is only sharing a snap shot of their life. She might have a big, beautiful house but she could be longing for a child to hold in her arms. She might have three beautiful children but dreads every morning that she has to leave her kids at nursery because she has to work. She might be great at crafting and makes beautiful creations that everyone runs to buy but she may be crippled by anxiety. I need to remember this when I'm scrolling through my Instagram feed in the morning. I am lucky in so many ways. We could benefit from a bigger house with more space but we have a roof over our heads. I have two beautiful children. I have a husband that I love and who loves me back. We are happy. 


Emilie is still struggling with her three back teeth that are coming through and this weekend she's been a grouch. Last night though for the first time in - I can't even tell you how long - she slept through the night! Today she has been full of smiles and giggles. A full nights sleep for the Mummy doesn't hurt either ;)


A conversation between James and I last week.. 

James - 'Mum, you like chocolate right?'
Me - 'Yep..'
James - Well if you let me have the laptop in bed tonight then I'll give you one of my sweets from Halloween.. Is that a deal?'
Nice try kiddo..

Here's to a new week!
