Today I will cut myself some slack. I won't freak out that my house is a disaster again, and I won't beat myself up for the fact that I haven't exercised at all this week.
Today I will open up all the windows in my house, let the fresh air in, and listen to the birds chirping while I thank God for all the amazing things he's done for me.
Today I will eat a piece of birthday cake for lunch, and I will let my daughter do the same.
Today I will put aside the laundry, forget about the 2 sinks of dirty dishes, the counter top covered in junk, and the countless Cheerios that have been stomped into the carpet, and I will cuddle with my daughter. For as long as she will let me.
Today I'll leave my computer off for a few hours.
Today I'll skip the shower, put my hair in a ponytail and call it good, because sleeping in is a fabulous luxury, and it's even greater when you've got a 1-year-old next to you talking with her hands - in her sleep.
Today I will look in the mirror and I will like what I see instead of choosing to focus on my flaws.
Today I've realized that I need to make an effort to have more days just like this.
Today is good.
