Inspired by the book 30 Chic Days at Home by @fionaferrisnz Day 22 – Self talk. Fiona encourages those of us who are lucky enough to be able to stay at home feel thankful and frame the situation in a positive light. I am enjoying a much slower pace of life these days with less running around to kid’s activities and appointments. The kids haven’t skipped a beat. They replaced organized sport with biking and are probably spending more time outdoors than ever before. I am lucky in that I live in a rural setting so we have a lot of natural space. This experience has made me more thankful for where I live. I’m also enjoying giving our home a bit of love and attention. Little projects that were always on my dreamy to-do list are finally coming to fruition. There are so many positive things about “being stuck at home”. I think this whole situation might help people rethink their hectic lives and slow down a simplify going forward. How has slowing down impacted you and what might you change?
