In April …
I want to eat out more, instead I will cook something I enjoy, or snack on something I enjoy. I will eat only foods I reasonably like,when hungry, and when I have time so I can appreciate my food. I will think about paying off our house and our yearly vacation.
I want to travel more, instead I will read about the places I want to visit. I will look for inexpensive activities I can enjoy during our yearly vacation that I can look forward to.
I will enjoy and appreciate my family’s presence, their humor, and their singing.
I will be grateful for my kids basketball practices and games. I will share in their victories, improvements and their defeats.
I will enjoy and appreciate my children’s growth and their end of the year ceremony, at the end of the month. I will enjoy and appreciate all the moms and kids in our co-op, the program itself, and the opportunity to homeschool (which I also try to do throughout the year).
I will be grateful and appreciative of my faith as I celebrate Easter.
How are you planning on practicing gratitude and contentment in April?
