The Power of Thinking Positive Through Tough Times

It’s extremely easy to use the power of thinking positive when times are going well. You just landed that awesome job or your children made high honor roll. There are times when the power of thinking positive simply comes naturally and you reap the rewards of positive thinking. Then there are times like today, where you feel let down, deeply saddened and there is no way you could ever muster up the positive thinking skills necessary to get through tough times. It’s easier to think you can’t do something than it is to push forward and climb above the hardships.

Fine Dining at Roots – The Restaurant in Rutland, Vermont @rootsrutland

While traveling along on our regular kid-free weekend road trip, Mike and I started to get hungry. I was driving this particular weekend since Mike is still no weight bearing on his ankle. That’s another story for another day, anyways … We were traveling along the roads in Vermont and our tummies started to grumble.

He made an executive decision and turned on the lovely Google Maps

Family Friday Pizza Challenge

Family Friday Pizza Challenge

Every Friday in our household we host a Family Friday event. In the past this was setup with a slumber party after pizza for dinner, movies and just fun with the kids.

This past Friday I had an idea, doing something that still incorporated our pizza dinner but with a twist. You see, my trio had been talking about various challenges they see on YouTube

You see, I only ask for a couple of hours each morning during weekends and Summer break, after that I leave the work behind and put on the Mom Duty hat. It usually works well for us, as that’s what our life has been
