Today has been filled with ooodles and OOODLES of paperwork and while I dislike book keeping, I’m SO very thankful that we have business; that our people are able to work from home and even that I have paperwork to do. #sharethejoy2020 #paperworkALLDAYLONG #giterdone #workfromhome #stayathome Posted by Intagrate Lite
One thing I learned during cancer isolation was to get up and get on with your day. I found that if I spent the entire day in my pyjamas, that I slobbed around the house, felt like a slug and pretty much got nothing accomplished. For me, it’s way better to “get up, get ready and get going”. I’ll be honest, I don’t always do what I know is best, but if you’re feeling out of routine and uncertain of what to do next….then “get up, get ready and get going.” For me this means, doing hair and make up and getting dressed. Once I do that, it’s so much easier to accomplish what I want to accomplish. Having said that, I’m still having a cup of coffee, in my pyjamas, while sitting on the couch, contemplating what wild and crazy things that I’m going to do in my house today. #sharethejoy2020 #peace #getupgetreadygetgoing #wevegotthis #langleybc #covid_19 Posted by Intagrate Lite
I’m in cleaning mode…..which if you know me, isn’t like me. It’s not really a secret that I hate housecleaning. But this clean floor is definitely bringing me joy even if the actual effort isn’t…..and really, I’m just thankful that I’m alive and healthy enough to do something that I dislike. #sharethejoy2020 #housecleaning #miraclesdohappen #langley #quarentinecleaning Posted by Intagrate Lite
I have released a free printable sample of my kids journal (a weeks worth) because it’s so important to me, that our kids have access to resources to help them process their feelings and emotions during this time.
I’m so very thankful that Jude will engage with art because he hesitates to express verbally, what he’s thinking. We decided to draw turtles tonight and when I asked about his turtle, he said, “He’s a snapping turtle and he’s sad because he’s trapped inside the aquarium and he just wants to get out.” There’s a lot to unpack in that short phrase but regardless, he’s processing. As we worked through his write and draw journal, he quickly shared that he was worried and scared because of the corona virus and that he might get sick. While it’s not an in-depth adult level discussion of his feelings, it is acknowledging, accepting and processing through some of those emotions, which is what I hope for. Because sharing those big feelings often make them feel just a little less intense. #sharethejoy2020 #arttherapy #sadtrappedturtle #judahzane #lookforthepositives Posted by Intagrate Lite
