A Small Success

So, here's the thing.  This week was awful.  Nothing went the way we wanted it to.  Everything that could go wrong, did, and we didn't handle the stress the way I would have liked.  I spent hours writing down every horrid detail, titling the post, "How to Drive Your Family to the Brink of Insanity While Digging a Sand Point Well."  

And then I deleted it.  

I chose not to dwell on what has already happened, knowing I can't change anything.  I'm letting it go and movin' on.  Apologies have been said and we're each learning from our mistakes, making sure that we have the tools to do better next time.

Right now, we're focusing on the pipe we drilled into the ground, all by ourselves, and it has a reasonable amount of water in it. 

For today, we're calling it a success.

  1. That's exactly what I did last week. It was a horrible week, filled with depression, hormone-crazyness, and anxiety.. I thought I was going crazy. I started writing a blog entry about it, and then decided to focus on the things that are good instead. So I wrote a blog entry about what happiness meant to me in that moment, plus pictures. It was a lovely way to shift my shitty attitude into gratitude!
