Soulful Sundays- Making lemonade

Soulful Sundays is back, folks. Would you like to hear the five lessons from this week?

Soulful SundaysAfter coming out of a rather troubling week previously, this one gone by has been so comforting and a balm to the soul. You’ve heard that saying, ‘When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.’ Guess I managed to do that πŸ™‚

As I come out of this week though, I am glad to share theseΒ 5Β things that warmed my heart:

  1. Understanding that my daughter is not forgetful on purpose has brought so much clarity into our relationship. To read more, check out this post if you haven’t.
  2. Meeting up with family after feeling so lonely all through illness was a cherished moment. When the parents and in-laws all get along so well, it’s a blessing, you will agree. Getting a huge haul of Wodehouse books made my Saturday, thanks to my fabulous dad.Wodehouse!
  3. Hosting my first-ever hash tag party on Thursday was both fun and exciting. I gained a lot of insights into Twitter behaviour which I will share soon in another post.
  4. I’ve been sleeping early most nights thanks to following The Happiness Project and it’s been such a lifesaver through the week.
  5. The best moment of all, though? My husband came home on Friday night after a week and said, ‘This week has been good for you, I can tell. Your face has a beautiful,peaceful glow that it’s been missing for a while.’

Did you have a soulful Sunday?

Did you make lemonade with life’s lemons?

  4. You truly did make lemonade if came out with so many learnings despite being unwell. And for a husband to notice it – it must be big :-D. I have to check out that Happiness Project. Hope you have many more good weeks.

    1. I know, right? Husband noticing it clearly reflects that this is working, the conscious focus on happiness, I mean. I have a really good feeling about 2016 and hope it persists well beyond January πŸ™‚ Wish you a wonderful week too, Tulika!
