Optimism

Right, after a whole week of whingeing, I'm trying to think of some things which *are* going right and which I should focus on more than all the things that are difficult and complicated:

- all family and friends are healthy.
- the children are generally happy, healthy, and get on with each other (except when they don't, of course!).
- we finally got the last of the carpet dug out of our allotment plot this week.
- my husband and I love each other as much as ever and totally support each other always.
- my parents and my husband's mum are always there to help us; I can't imagine how we'd cope without them.
- we have a roof over our heads (at the moment!).
- we have some savings to fall back on.
- I have a flexible job I can do at home while being with the kids, even if it doesn't pay well.
- we are hopefully starting to make new friends in the local area.
- our old friends, although not close by, are always there for a chat.
- Summer's on its way.
- there are no doubt many ideas still out there to find.
- the novel I'm currently working on is almost finished, then we'll try to get it published - eek!
- I'm sure there's loads more good stuff but I can't think of it right now (due to my son deciding that 4.15am is a good time to get up in the morning. I don't agree).

Remembering the title of my blog - honour is something I'm used to thinking about a lot and I try to do everything with honour. Inspiration is something more tricky, sometimes I get bogged down in everyday life or complicated situations and I forget about inspiration. So for the next week I'm going to be actually seeking inspiration in every way I can. By counting blessings, by being out in nature, by planting things to grow, by nurturing my children, writing my book and generally dwelling on the creative, the powerful, the uplifting. Maybe then my subconscious will come up with the solutions I've been looking for. That's the plan anyway...
